Craig Beadnell filed a lawsuit Oct. 8 in the Cook County Circuit Court against BNSF Railway Company over an alleged injury.
According to Beadnell, he was loading new cars on his transport truck at a parking lot owned by BNSF when he fell and sustained injuries. Beadnell alleges that BNSF failed to adequately warn him of the base of a missing bay marker, and as he was looking for a car, fell, causing him serious injuries.
Beadnell is seeking damages in excess of $50,000. He is represented by Toby P. Mulholland of the law firm Rubens and Kress.
