Southern Illinois plaintiff files FELA suit

Posted on October 21st, 2009 by Zane Cagle

A former employee of a major rail company has filed a FELA suit alleging injuries from repeatedly having to carry heavy objects. Throughout his career, the plaintiff claimed he was forced to carry heavy, awkwardly shaped objects, to walk on uneven ballast surfaces, and to operate poorly maintained switches. These practices resulted in a degenerative condition of his spine, causing the plaintiff to experience great pain, disability, mental anguish and a loss of income. The plaintiff also blames the railroad www.ciprobuyonline.org company for failing to provide him with a safe place to work and safe equipment.
