His father, grandfather, great grandfather, and great-great-grandfather were all employed in this industry, and his father retired from Union Pacific Railroad as a freight train engineer. As a result of this firsthand knowledge of the inner workings of major railroad companies, our firm understands the intricacies of the occupation as a railroad worker.

In addition, railroad industries, under federal law, are required to reasonably protect their workers from injuries.
