Clint McGuire and Jeff Todd obtained a $1.299M verdict against Port Terminal Railroad Association on behalf of Russell Williams and Kelvin Brooks, two BNSF employees who were injured when PTRA’s employees kicked some cars into a locomotive occupied by Williams and Brooks. PTRA contended that the impact was less than 1 mph and could not have injured Williams and Brooks. The jury disagreed, awarding Williams and Brooks more than twice what they were offered pre-trial.
