Doyle Dennis LLP and the Youngdahl Law Firm File Lawsuit on Behalf of Train Engineer Who Suffered Hearing Loss and Tinnitus Injuries as a Result of Union Pacific’s FELA Negligence
Doyle Dennis LLP recently filed suit in Harris County on behalf of a train conductor who injured himself as a result of an incident that occurred when Defendant Union Pacific Railroad Company failed to properly maintain its equipment, causing their train horn to malfunction and injure our client.
Doyle Dennis LLP’s client, a hardworking and loyal engineer, worked for Union Pacific for over eleven years. On or about October 1, 2022, as a result of Union Pacific’s failure to maintain its equipment, our client’s train horn failed. Due to a burnt actuator, the horn continued to blow constantly for approximately an hour until our client could find an airline that shut off the air to the horn. Due to our client’s work-related incident, he sustained severe and debilitating injuries, including bilateral high frequency sensorineural hearing loss and tinnitus of both ears.
Union Pacific failed to provide our client with a reasonably safe place to work, failed to provide safe working conditions and proper equipment where our client was performing his duties in the manner required by Union Pacific, failed to provide our client with sufficient and proper assistance, and more. Our client’s injuries are permanent and will have a serious effect on his health and well-being for the rest of his life. Prior to October 1, 2022, he was a person of sound and robust health and physical strength. Due to his injuries from this incident, our client has suffered permanent physical impairment.
