U.S. Supreme Court

Grand Trunk Western Ry. Co. v. Lindsay, 233 U.S. 42 (1914)

Grand Trunk Western Railway Company v. Lindsay

No. 425

Argued February 27, 1914

Decided April 6, 1914

233 U.S. 42

Syllabus

The operation and effect of the Employers' Liability Act upon the rights of the parties is involved in an action for negligence where the complaint alleges and the proof establishes that the employee was engaged in, and the injury occurred in the course of, interstate commerce even though the act was not referred to in the pleadings or pressed at the trial. Seaboard Air Line v. Duvall, 225 U. S. 477.

Although § 3 of the Employers' Liability Act establishes a system of comparative negligence, and diminution of damages by reason of the employee's contributory negligence, the proviso to that section expressly provides that contributory negligence does not operate to diminish the recovery if the injury has been occasioned in part by the failure of the carrier to comply with Safety Appliance Acts. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
