Mullins McLeod represented a railroad worker who worked for New Jersey Transit Authority. NJTA is a large commuter railroad that provides service through the State of New Jersey and into New York City. The RR denied that anything was wrong with their locomotive and argued that the Plaintiff was not hurt as a result of the incident. The RR did not make any settlement offers before the trial began. The case was tried in Bergen County, New Jersey. After a six week trial, the jury returned a verdict for $1,000,000 before assessing comparative negligence on behalf of the Plaintiff. Mullins was able to prove the locomotive was defective because it had a malfunctioning oil ring and the exposure was the proximate cause of his client’s injury.
