$700,000 FELA Settlement

December 19, 2023

Colin S. Haviland, Esq. and Daniel N. Purtell, Esq. settled an FELA case for $700,000 on behalf of a client who suffered severe injuries as a result of his Railroad employer failing to supply the proper equipment to complete his job.

McEldrew Purtell’s client was directed to manually lift an excavator bucket weighing in excess of three hundred pounds, despite his employer having a rule its employees should lift anything over 55 pounds without the assistance of a machine.  Our firm is proud of our work on our client’s behalf because we secured the money he needed to get him back on his feet and provide his family the financial security they deserve.
