Union Pacific Veteran Files FELA Lawsuit

July 5, 2006

A Federal Employers' Liability Act lawsuit has been filed against Union Pacific, the nation's largest railroad, by a 34-year veteran who alleges the company's negligence caused him to suffer numerous injuries on the job.

Kenneth Carpenter filed the suit in Madison County Circuit Court last month. According to the petition, Carpenter sustained severe and permanent injury to his back, neck, spine, shoulders, and knees.

The lawsuit claims that Union Pacific was negligent in its failure to provide a safe working environment, sufficient manpower, and proper tools and equipment.

Carpenter is seeking damages to cover lost wages and earning capacity, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
