An Amtrak electrician has filed suit against the company because of a shock he suffered on the job three years ago. Brian Kilgore filed with a Pennsylvania court, claiming that his managers failed to follow protocol to prevent the shock, violating the Federal Employers Liability Act by not providing a safe workplace.
According to a report, "Kilgore suffered injuries to his feet, head, arms, plus his ones and tissue. He also sustained cardiac and neurological injuries that required prolonged hospitalization."
The complaint says that Amtrak’s negligence forced Kilgore to lose his potential earning power and seek medical attention at great expense.
Kilgore is seeking in excess of $150,000.
