Any railroad worker or train worker injured in an accident that was the result of someone else’s negligence could file a lawsuit under the Federal Employees Liability Act (FELA). This law provides additional compensation to train and railroad employees who were injured on the job.
Passed by Congress in 1908, this law addressed what was then an epidemic of work-related injuries and deaths in the railroad industry.
The Barnes Firm’s top FELA lawyers have extensive knowledge about railroad accidents and the claims process that follows. Call our team anytime to go over your legal options for FREE.
Injured railroad workers and train employees do not receive regular workers’ compensation. Instead, workers must prove that their employer or coworker acted in an unsafe manner, resulting in an injury. Even if a worker’s injury was their own fault (as a result of a mistake), the employer may still be required to provide compensation.
Each case is unique, and it is important to discuss your options with an experienced train accident attorney. Contact us or call The Barnes Firm any time for a FREE case evaluation.
