Transportation Group’s Christine Hardy wins defense verdict for Major Railroad Client

March 23, 2010 – Christine Hardy was successful in obtaining an arbitration award in favor of a major railroad client in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. The plaintiff, a 35-year-old railroad worker, sued the defendant under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) demanding $40,000 in damages for bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome. During closing arguments, Mrs. Hardy argued that the defendant provided the plaintiff with a reasonably safe work environment. The court determined that the plaintiff failed to prove negligence.
