The Federal Employer’s Liability Act is a law that can provide compensation to railroad workers who were either injured on the job or became sick as a result of their work.
FELA was specifically developed to help railroad workers, as broken bones, mesothelioma, amputations, and even death had become health hazards as the result of railroad related accidents and asbestos exposure.
A railroad worker injured on the job can use FELA to get compensated for their injuries. This law is important because railroad workers are not eligible for some workers’ compensation benefits. FELA compensation can provide sufficient funds to help pay for the cost of medical treatment of mesothelioma or other asbestos-related illness.
