FELA And Railway Worker Claims

The Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) was enacted in 1908 to protect railroad employees in their line of work. This act creates a duty on your railroad employer, requiring the railroad to provide workers with reasonably safe work conditions, no matter where an employee works within the rail yard or what position he or she works in. Any railroad worker who is injured on the job is entitled to compensation for all damages and injuries that were caused by the negligent conduct by the railroad. Railroad workers are also protected under other federal railroad statutes such as the Federal Rail Safety Act (FRSA), Locomotive Inspection Act and more.

Advocating For Railroad Workers

FELA laws are complex, so choose an experienced lawyer to represent your interests. Without help from an experienced lawyer, it is likely that you will not receive the full amount of compensation you deserve. We have advocated for injured railroad workers for nearly our entire professional careers.
