Curtis Graham, a machine operator for Alton & Southern Railway, has filed a suit claiming that he sustained personal injuries to his back after a backhoe he was using to remove snow from an East St. Louis, Missouri parking lot turned on its side.

On June 26, Graham filed a Federal Employers’ Liability Act suit in the Circuit Court of St. Clair County, Missouri alleging negligence on the part of his employer for failing to warn or mark the edges of a parking lot.

Graham also alleges negligence on the part of the railroad for failure to provide a reasonably safe workplace.

The complaint says that on February 2, Graham was operating a backhoe which fell into a ditch.

Graham seeks damages in excess of $100,000 for loss of wages, medical expenses, and permanent, painful, and progressive injuries in addition to costs of suit.
