    Hello,

    Was wondering if it's possible to sue a major conglomerate for negligence and endangerment? Recently I made the spotlight for an incident where I nearly fell off a train due to negligence. I was not directly injured, but I don't think the corporation should be allowed to get away with this scot-free. Do I have any legal grounds?

    You can sue for anything you believe caused you harm.
    You can only recover if you have suffered actual damages, not that you could have suffered damages, only when you DO suffer damages.

    If you truly think it needs to be addressed... Then make sure it gets fixed instead of going after a money settlement.

    You weren't injured. You have nothing to sue for.

    Then report it to the appropriate regulatory agencies. That's all you've got.
