  • CSX Transportation, Inc. v. Collins

    Date Decided: Nov 5th, 2010
    Decided By: Kentucky Court of Appeals (State)
    Court: Ky. App.
    Citation: 2010 WL 4366296 (Ky. App. 2010)

    Background:
    Plaintiff, a railroad worker, brought this action against his employer, CSX Transportation ("CSX"), pursuant to the Federal Employers' Liability Act ("FELA"). Plaintiff asserted that he had developed bilateral osteoarthritis as a result of CSX's failure to provide a reasonably safe place to work. The trial court found for the plaintiff, and entered a final judgment that CSX was liable for the Plaintiff's injuries. CSX appealed the decision. CSX asserted that the trial court erred when it failed to instruct the jury on proximate cause. Specifically, CSX argued that the FELA was drafted to be consistent with the common law concept of negligence.
