Jury Awards Former Iowa Interstate Railroad Train Conductor $33 Million

In Rock Island County, Illinois, Andrew Schulte, a former Iowa Interstate Railroad train conductor, was awarded $33 million in damages by a jury last week to compensate him for his April 2007 Railroad Personal Injury Claims.

Mr. Schulte was trying to pull a pin on a rail car when the pin lifter stuck, causing him to trip and fall, leading to his being struck and run over by a another rail car.

He sued Iowa Interstate Railroad  after undergoing a double-amputation of both his legs and the loss of his bowels.  Mr. Schulte underwent multiple painful surgeries.

Many railroad employers have been guilty of failing to maintain a safe place to work, failing to have a proper lookout, violating safety rules, failing to properly train their employees, and failing to properly construct, inspect and maintain various aspects of their work environments.

The FELA law firm of Schechter, Shaffer & Harris, L.L.P., Accident & Injury Lawyers  has represented injured victims for over 45 years, winning hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients.  We have handled cases involving railroad employer neglience all over the United States. Matthew Shaffer represents railroad workers injured on the job in their litigation under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA).  Contact SMSH today to discuss your rights.
