Liverpool Railway Brakeman The first person to ever sue his employers


Dear Sir/Madam
I am trying to find out about an accident that happened sometime between 1901 and 1911. My Grandfather Ernest Threlfall worked as a Railway Breaksman on the Liverpool railways. He had an accident whilst working and the story is that he lost both legs. He sued the Railway company and apparently was the first person to ever sue his employers.
I would be extremely grateful for any information you may have.
Thank you
Sarah Hill
