NEW YORK (AP) - A Goshen, New York man has sued Amtrak for injuries he sustained in last week’s crash.

The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court Tuesday by lawyers for Michael Walsh.

The lawsuit seeking unspecified damages said Walsh was in the train’s first car returning to New York from a business trip to Washington.

It said he suffered multiple fractures and other severe injuries in the May 12 derailment that killed eight people and injured more than 200 others.

The lawsuit said Walsh is entitled to punitive damages because Amtrak’s conduct was “outrageous, willful and grossly reckless.”

Amtrak said it doesn’t comment on pending litigation.
