Railroad Engineer's Award of $2 Million for Repetitive Stress Injuries Affirmed

A Pennsylvania jury awarded a CSX railroad engineer over $2 million for repetitive stress injuries. The engineer asserted that years of hard couplings had caused injury to his neck which ultimately required surgical correction. The railroad appealed the verdict claiming that federal regulations requiring that locomotive cab seats be securely mounted did not apply. The appeals court rejected the railroad's claim and held that the claim was actionable under the Locomotive Inspection Act. Our office is currently handling several repetitive stress cases and we are happy to go over the facts of your situation to see if you have a possible claim. Each case receives our individual attention.
