NEW ORLEANS – A railroad worker alleges he was injured because of the negligence of another employee.
Miles Moman filed a complaint on Sept. 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against the Canadian National Railway Co. and/or Canadian National Railroad and Frankie Perry alleging that they violated the provisions of the Federal Employer’s Liability Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Sept. 28, 2015, he was working on a Canadian railroad line in Tennessee and was aboard a motorized cart when it was struck by a similar cart operated by Perry. The plaintiff holds Canadian National Railway Co. and/or Canadian National Railroad and Perry responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide with a safe place to work, failed to provide proper and/or safety equipment and failed to provide proper training to, and supervision of, its employees.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment in favor of plaintiff in an amount sufficient to compensate him for all sums reasonable in the premises, plus interest, all costs of these proceedings, and for all other equitable relief. He is represented by Jennifer N. Willis of Willis & Buckley APC in New Orleans.
