Bloomingdale is a village in Van Buren County in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 528 at the 2000 census. The village is located within Bloomingdale Township and is the township seat. In the 1930s oil was discovered within the village limits, but pumping has now ceased due to lack of oil. Bloomingdale was thought to be a rising city but when the oil ceased so did the attraction. That is why Bloomingdale doesn't have as many people as we did in the 1930s hence that Bloomingdale is a village not a town. Bloomingdale is considered the midpoint on the popular Kal-Haven Trail, which runs directly through the main four corners and business district. The downtown Augustus Haven Park with its Depot Museum is a popular picnic stop for trail users. Though born in Traverse City, actor David Wayne was raised in Bloomingdale.

What is railroad worker injury law?

Railroad worker injuries are covered under the Federal Employees Liability Act which requires that a railroad maintains their fleet, ensuring that their trains are in good working order and free of defects. If a railroad does not comply with these standards, they may be liable for injuries to their workers. Damages railroad workers may receive include medical treatments, present and future lost wages and mental trauma. An injury on the railway can range from a minor sprain to a spinal injury so severe that it leads to death. Some of the most common injuries that affect railway workers are head trauma, knee injuries, back injuries, neck injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, brain trauma or spinal cord injuries. The Federal Employees Liability Act protects railroad workers and others as diverse as clerical employees whose day-to-day functions do not directly involve trains or outdoor activity.
