A GROUP of people injured when a train derailed between Malaga and Seville are planning to sue the department responsible.
A firm of lawyers are now hoping other victims will join the suit after four of the 37 people harmed in the accident are taking action against Train Infrastructure Administration (Adif).
Firm Osuna Abogados claims there was a “malfunction,” and, “bad performance” of the train because of heavy rainfall and that Adif has “administrative responsibilities” for the accident. The lawyers say the train should have either stopped or be going very slowly due to the weather.
One lawyer claimed, “it seems that it should never have been agreed that the train would go down the track in the terrible conditions it was in or, if it did, it would have to be very slow. None of the measures was adopted. ”
In response to the legal action, Adif told one publication the Renfe tickets bought for the journey include passenger insurance.
