ST. LOUIS — A transportation clerk is suing a railroad corporation, citing alleged insufficient measures were taken to prevent injuries.

Sharolyn Reed-Thompson filed a complaint June 9 in the St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court against National Railroad Passenger Corp. (Amtrak) alleging that the company violated the provisions of the Federal Employer's Liability Act.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges she sustained severe injuries while performing her duties. The plaintiff was allegedly caused to suffer injuries to her left shoulder and back, resulting in physical pain and suffering, and lost wages and benefits, and she incurred medical expenses, court records state. 

The plaintiff holds National Railroad Passenger Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly subjected the plaintiff to excessive and repetitive unsafe ergonomics and postures and failed to train her on the proper posture and ergonomics to perform her job.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount in excess of $25,000, costs for this action and all further relief to which she may be entitled. She is represented by D. Matthew Dreesen of Dreesen Law Firm LLC in Chesterfield.

St. Louis 22nd Judicial Circuit Court case number 1722-CC05561
