Railroad Disability Benefits Attorneys

Railroad work presents a host of dangers, from direct physical injury due to accidents to injuries that occur as a result of inhaling fumes or working with hazardous materials and many more. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says working on the railroad is one of the most hazardous jobs in the country.

What's more, being injured comes with its own set of risks. While employees in other sectors can turn to Social Security disability benefits to help them when their injuries prevent them from doing their jobs, railroad workers have to file a claim with the Railroad Retirement Board.

Disability Claims Process

The board was created specifically to handle the distribution of benefits when a railroad worker is no longer able to work due to injury – whether that injury is work-related or not.

While proving any long-term disability claim can be difficult, because railroad claims are far less common, handling them successfully requires an in-depth understanding of both the initial claims process and the appeals process.
