Metro-North could face more than two dozen lawsuits after the crash in Valhalla that left six people dead.
Metro-North has been made aware of 34 potential lawsuits made against the railroad for damages. Monday was the last day for those injured in the Feb. 3 crash to file a claim.
The news of the lawsuits comes just two days after the family of Ellen Brody, the SUV driver who got stuck on the tracks, announced they're suing Metro-North.
The family of Eric Vandercar, one of the five passengers killed on board the train, says they intend to file a claim blaming the roadway design and third rail as contributing to the crash.
There has been no official comment from Metro-North.
