Doyle Dennis LLP & The Youngdahl Law Firm, P.C. Files Suit Against Union Pacific
Doyle Dennis LLP, along with The Youngdahl Law Firm, P.C., helps injured railroad workers who are covered by a federal statute known as the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA). Lawyers representing railroaders must know the railroad industry, the laws and regulations that protect its workers, and something about the work that the men and women do every day in our vital transportation industry.
Doyle Dennis LLP recently filed suit against Union Pacific. Their client was employed by Union Pacific Railroad Company as an Assistant Foreman.
On or about May 4, 2021, the client was injured on the job. Specifically, the client was using a hydraulic spiker while working on track construction. Union Pacific provided inadequate and insufficient workers and equipment to the work that the client was assigned. Under FELA, Union Pacific was negligent. In addition, Union Pacific violated federal safety statutes and regulations. The Federal Railroad Administration has promulgated federal regulations that set forth safety standards governing railroad tracks. One of the purposes of these regulations is to protect railroad workers such as Doyle Dennis LLP’s client. As a result of Union Pacific’s negligence and safety violations, the client sustained injuries to her spine and body generally.
Bringing together decades of railroad experience and a proven track history of record trial results, Doyle Dennis LLP and The Youngdahl Law Firm, P.C. have joined forces to build a team able to provide the highest level of support for railroaders and their families. Our legal team includes Michael Doyle, Patrick Dennis, Jeffrey Avery, Emma Brockway, and Sara Youngdahl. Ms. Youngdahl is the only woman in the United States who is designated as legal counsel for a rail union and serves on the Academy of Rail Labor Attorneys (ARLA) Board of Managers.
