Railroad worker sues BNSF over cumulative injuries

A long-time railroad worker with BNSF is filing suit against them for a whole host of issues he claims he has developed from his time with them – from neck and spine problems to psychological trauma. While we explicitly do not represent or advocate for railroad employees in order to maintain the integrity of our firm, it is nevertheless worth noting (and quite sadly, not surprising) how consistently bad railroads treat not only the public, but in many cases their workers as well. The list of problems this man is suffering from is pretty tragic. Work-related injuries do happen and are always tragic, but when the injuries result simply because the company refuses to provide hospitable conditions and implement safety precautions, ethical boundaries have been crossed. Tragic indeed.
