Unfortunately, thousands of railroad workers are injured every year. These injuries are often devastating and many times result in an injured worker being permanently disabled or worse. Railroad workers injured on the job are not protected by workers’ compensation, but must seek compensation under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA).
FELA requires that the injured railroad worker prove that the railroad was legally negligent at least in part in causing their injury in order to receive compensation. Our attorneys have extensive knowledge and experience litigating FELA claims and have obtained substantial recoveries on behalf of injured railroad workers.
