Railroad Cars

All parts of railroad cars must work properly. The railroad is absolutely responsible if a railroad car has defective equipment.

Examples are: loose or broken grab iron, loose or broken stirrup, defective brake, loose or broken cut lever, or knuckle that does not work properly.


All locomotive engine parts must work properly and the railroad is absolutely responsible if the locomotive has defective equipment. This includes couplers, cut levers, steps, handrails, doors, seats, valves, all parts. Examples are loose seat, seat collapses, hard to open door, steps loose, handrail loose, oil or grease on the floor.

The railroad is absolutely responsible if the problem with the car or locomotive causes the injury to the railroad worker.

Railroad workers can collect for injuries. Contact the law firm of Wilson & Hajek.
