Doyle Dennis LLP Files Lawsuit Alongside the Youngdahl Law Firm on Behalf of Train Engineer Who Suffered Injuries as a Result of Union Pacific’s FELA Negligence and Violation of Federal Safety Statutes and Regulations
Doyle Dennis LLP recently filed suit in Harris County on behalf of a train engineer who injured himself as a result of an incident that occurred when Defendant Union Pacific Railroad Company failed to provide our client with a reasonably safe place to work, failed to properly train its employees on the safe and proper operation of a Kawasaki, and more.
Doyle Dennis LLP’s client, a hardworking and loyal engineer, has worked for Union Pacific for approximately ten years. On or about August 14, 2021, our client was a passenger in a Kawasaki side by side being driven by a Union Pacific Conductor. The crew had just crossed over the railroad track and were headed back towards the yard office when the driver lost control of the Kawasaki, was unable to stop, ran over a curb, and crashed into the yard office. Due to our client’s work-related incident, he sustained severe and debilitating injuries to his back, head, right eye, and body generally.
As a result of his injuries, our client was released to return to work on March 16, 2022, and finalized his return to active duty on March 21, 2022. Since returning to work, our client continues to undergo medical treatment, and Union Pacific has stripped him of his legal right to FMLA for required medical appointments.
