Man Who Lost Both Legs When Hit by Metro L Line Train Settles Suit


A man who says he fell onto the Metro L (Gold) Line tracks in 2018 and remained unconscious there for nearly 11 minutes before being hit by a train, causing him to lose both legs, has reached a settlement of his lawsuit against Metro, attorneys in the case told a judge Friday.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert B. Broadbelt canceled the scheduled Nov.16 start of trial of plaintiff Patrick Chammas’ case in the wake of the accord, the terms of which were not divulged during Friday’s status conference.

Chammas’ negligence suit alleged that train operator John Delao should have seen him and stopped the train before it struck the plaintiff about 9:45 p.m. May 26, 2018 at the Soto Station. Chammas has fallen from the north platform onto the westbound tracks, according to his attorneys’ court papers.
