Railroad Workers' Compensation Lawyers

Every year, thousands of railroad workers suffer serious injuries while on the job, injuries that can wind up changing the courses of their lives. While some injuries may be due to worker error, the vast majority are caused when the railroad company is negligent. In those cases, filing a claim under the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA) can help ensure you get the compensation you deserve to pay for the costs associated with your injury, including medical costs and lost wages.

FELA Claims Process

FELA takes the place of traditional workers' compensation insurance programs that cover non-railroad workers. Under a FELA claim, a worker must show that the railroad company was negligent and that negligence is what caused the injury to occur.

Proving negligence is never a simple task, and having an experienced FELA attorney is critical. While some attorneys may be expert at handling traditional workers' comp claims, most are not familiar with the complex process involved in successfully handling a FELA claim from start to finish. When it comes to FELA, even a small gap in knowledge of the law can result in claims denial or a significant reduction in the amount of compensation you're ultimately awarded.
