Union Pacific Ordered To Pay $1-Million To Former Track Welder

(Belleville, IL)  --  The Union Pacific Railroad has been ordered to pay a Central Illinois area man one-million-dollars for injuries he suffering during his twenty years as a track welder.  

Forty-eight-year-old Don Currie of Villa Grove had filed suit, claiming he often had to stand in awkward positions for long period to work on railroad tracks, resulting in permanent back injuries that required surgery.  

Attorneys for the railroad had argued that Currie's injuries were the result of smoking and heredity.
