CHARLESTON - A West Virginia man is suing CSX Transportation after he was injured while working as a conductor for the railroad.

Curtis P. Meadows filed the suit April 17 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

According to the suit, Meadows was working as a conductor on tracks in Fayette County on Oct. 24, 2007. While he was performing his duties he was injured, the suit says. Meadows suffered a fractured pelvis and injury to his hips, including multiple abrasions and contusions.

Meadows claims CSX failed to provide him with a safe place to work, and failed to keep the tracks and the area around the tracks safe.

He seeks compensation for his injuries and damages.

Attorney Willard J. Woody Jr. is representing Meadows. The case has been assigned to Judge Tod Kaufman.
