By Linda Williams | Sep 6, 2013


LOGAN - A former CSX Transportation engineer has filed suit against the company, claiming he suffers from bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome due to job-related tasks.

Paul Rakes filed suit Feb. 13 in Circuit Court of Logan County against CSX Transportation Inc. citing the Federal Employers Liability Act.

According to the court document, the complainant was an engineer employed by CSX from 1981 to 2011, and his duties required him to use his hands in repetitive and stressful motions and grasping on a daily basis.

He contends that as a result, he suffers from bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome, which has caused pain of body and mind and loss of normal enjoyment of life.

The plaintiff demands a jury trial and asks for an amount that will compensate him for his injuries and damages, as well as costs.

Rakes is represented by Donald C. Wandling of Avis, Witten and Wandling law firm.

Circuit Court of Logan County Case No. 13-C-60.
