Railroad accident sends conductor to the hospital with injuries

If a Connecticut railroad worker is injured on the job, the Federal Employers Liability Act enables the employee to file a personal injury claim if employer negligence was a causal factor in the incident. A railroad accident recently occurred that landed a conductor of a railroad in another state in the hospital. Rescue workers who were dispatched to the scene came upon a situation that necessitated use of hydraulic rescue tools.

Railroad accident in another state prompts evidence challenge

When a Connecticut locomotive and commercial vehicle collide, it often results in fatality or serious injury to workers, passengers or vehicle occupants. Such situations often lead to criminal charges, personal injury litigation or both. A railroad accident that occurred in another state involved congressional members of the Republican party, and an attorney acting on behalf of the man who was deemed liable for the incident is challenging the state's evidence against his client.
