Represented by William P. Gavin of the Gavin Law Firm in Belleville, Rainey also is claiming damages under the Locomotive Boiler Inspection Act and the Safety Appliance Act.

He seeks in excess of $450,000 in damages, claiming the railroad failed to provide him with a reasonably safe place to work, among other allegations.
