A suit was recently filed by Doyle Dennis LLP and The Youngdahl Law Firm, P.C, on behalf of a client injured within the course and scope of their employment for the Union Pacific Railroad Company. The employee, or client, suffered injuries and other damages from the negligence of their employer, Union Pacific. As such, the attorneys from the firms will seek what is owed to the client under federal statutes.
On or about January 24, 2019, the client was operating in a railyard office, when another Union Pacific employee collided with him without warning. This unexpected force caused the plaintiff to sustain serious injuries resulting from the impact. The injuries were due in whole or in part to the negligence of Union Pacific, its agents, servants or employees acting in the course and scope of their employment. Union Pacific failed its duty to the client as an employee to provide a safe work environment. The client will now pursue damages at the time of trial from this incident including: past and future physical pain; past and future mental anguish; reasonable medical expenses necessarily incurred and will need in the future from the incident; lost wages, benefits and future wage-earning capacity; physical impairment; and loss of enjoyment of life.
