Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Caj Boatright, Joseph McGowin, and Roland Christensen of Arnold & Itkin LLP filed suit on behalf of a railroad worker who was injured in a rail yard in Amarillo. Our client, a longtime railroader, was severely injured when a faulty lifting device supplied by his employer fell and caused a 300-pound governor to strike him.
Any equipment supplied by an employer is the company's responsibility—their responsibility to maintain, to inspect, and to repair. If the device failed, that's the company's responsibility too. Arnold & Itkin has extensive experience in FELA litigation and helping railroad workers throughout the country, and we'll put that experience to use as we fight for our client's full recovery.
“Railroad yards are dangerous places when employers fail to provide their workers with safe equipment," said Joseph McGowin. "We at Arnold & Itkin look forward to discovering the full truth of what happened and help this man get the justice he deserves.”
The suit was filed in Potter County, Texas.
