Railroad workers that are injured are covered by the FELA (Federal Employers Liability Act). This oldest Workers Compensation law in the country has protected railroad workers injured on the job since 1908. In order to obtain compensation in an FELA case, the injured worker must show that the injury is the fault of the railroad. The railroads have experienced professionals protecting the railroad’s interest against the injured worker. For this reason, the injured railroader needs an experienced professional to represent their interest to ensure that they are protected. We are experienced in handling to successful conclusion numerous cases through trial and settlement for injured railroad workers in all railroad crafts. We have been recognized and designated by several railroad unions.
We have also represented numerous victims that have been injured by a railroad at railroad grade crossings. Railroad crossing law is unique and requires expertise for the victim to take on these multi-billion dollar corporations.
