A Billings, Montana jury awarded $1.2 million dollars on Friday to a former BNSF Railway employee, who suffered a spinal injury two years ago. The jury found that BNSF had violated the Locomotive Inspection Act. The award was $840,000 in lost wages and $360,000 for pain and suffering.
Fredric A. Bremseth, a Denver lawyer who handles a lot of railroad cases apparently, represented the Plaintiff. Michelle Friend, a Billings, Montana lawyer, represented the railroad.
