For example in a case that involved a former CSX switchman who died of lung cancer it took three years of legal wrangling before the tides of justice turned back in favor of the victim. In a FELA case against CSX railroad. Our personal injury firm obtained an 8.6 million dollar verdict from a Knoxville, Tennessee jury in November 2010. However the CSX railroad corporation moved for a mistrial or new trial, despite 11 separate jury verdict findings in favor of the Estate. Shockingly, the trial judge granted CSX a new trial on all issues. However, weeks before the second trial, a second Knoxville Circuit Court judge completely dismissed the case on a summary judgment motion.
