A Missouri Man Recently Received a $1.4 Million Award in a Case
Thomas Ramsey, 52, an engineer for the railroad, fell on the ice on the platform of a locomotive and seriously injured his back. The accident, which BNSF denied was its fault, happened at the Ameren UE Rush Island Power plant in Missouri. In his suit, Ramsey contended that the railroad was negligent in not providing a walking surface that would prevent ice buildup, and on Oct. 3rd a St. Louis jury agreed. Ramsey was represented by the law firm of Schlichter Bogard & Denton and the Railroad by The Brasher law firm, both of St. Louis.
