MTA Derailment Lawsuit Seeks $5 Million For Harlem Woman

A Harlem woman who is suing the MTA after suffering a back injury from Tuesday’s A train derailment said she won’t be going back on a subway anytime soon.

“I’m not going to use the MTA again,” said Sheen Tucker, 31, who held a news conference on Thursday alongside her lawyer Sanford Rubenstein.

Tucker’s lawsuit filed in Brooklyn Civil Court on Wednesday seeks $5 million for her injury and psychological damage.

Tucker, a mother of two and a homemaker, walked with a limp on Thursday. She was on her way to a doctor’s appointment Tuesday morning when her train derailed near a Harlem station, injuring her and at least 38 others on the train.

She was treated at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and released into outpatient care.
