FELA Verdict in Nebraska

Comments Off

A Nebraska railroad worker won a nearly $2.8 million verdict against the Union Pacific Railroad for a workplace injury that went to trial last week at U.S. District Court in Omaha. Kendall Walsh lost the use of his right arm after it was crushed by a concrete railroad tie that fell off a pile at an Iowa railroad crossing two years ago. A jury sided with Walsh on Friday but found him partially responsible and subtracted 2 percent, or $56,000, from the $2.8 million verdict.
