Boblitz v. SSP Railroad Holding, LLC, et al.
Yesterday, in a case counseled by Matt and Pat, a Baltimore City Jury returned a verdict in the amount of $750,000.00 on behalf of a Conductor who slipped on snow and ice covered debris as he was cutting a line of rail cars. The Plaintiff injured his low back in that accident and as a result, underwent surgery. The Jury determined that the Plaintiff was unable to return to work in any capacity because of his back injury. In addition, despite finding his claim barred by limitations, determined that the Railroad was negligent in causing injuries to the Plaintiff’s knees. The jury determined that the Defendant had failed to eliminate certain job related risk factors known to cause injuries to the lower extremities.
