BNSF locomotive engineer injured, settled for $98,000

Clint McGuire obtained a $98,000 verdict for Mark Jordan, a BNSF locomotive engineer injured in a low speed train collision in a railyard. Jordan did not miss any time from work following the collision, BNSF paid his medical bills, and BNSF contended Jordan’s injuries, if any, were pre-existing. As such, BNSF contended that Jordan did not have any damages and offered him $0. The jury disagreed with BNSF’s assessment of the case, awarding Jordan $98,000, comprised mainly of pain and suffering and impairment.
