U.S. Supreme Court

Davis v. Virginia Railway Co., 361 U.S. 354 (1960)

Davis v. Virginia Railway Co.

No. 53

Argued December 10, 1959

Decided January 25, 1960

361 U.S. 354


In this action under the Federal Employers' Liability Act to recover damages for injuries resulting from petitioner's fall from a freight car while acting as a conductor in charge of shifting various railroad cars on respondent's tracks at an industrial plant, held:

1. The issue whether the injury was caused by respondent's direction to complete the shifting operation in 30 minutes, plus the inexperience of the brakemen assigned to help him, should have been left to the jury. Pp. 361 U. S. 355-357.

2. The evidence was insufficient to support petitioner's claim that the physician furnished by respondent to petitioner after the accident administered improper treatment. Pp. 361 U. S. 357-358.

Judgment reversed and cause remanded.
