Railroad Hearing Loss injuries come from exposure over time or trauma. A North Carolina railroad employee was injured when the horn was blown on the locomotive he was exiting. The horn blast was only a few feet from his ears. The force of the horn blast was described by an expert at trial as the same as standing next to a jet engine of an aircraft. The force of the sound dropped him to his knees.
The long term effect was a partial loss of hearing, ringing in the ears, inability to distinguish speech when there was background noise, and an indication of loss of balance. The injured employee was awarded over a million dollars by a Virginia jury.
This is an example of how an expert hired by Eddie Wilson was able to describe to a jury how an incident such as a whistle blast can harm a railroad employee.
