FELA Attorneys

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.

File A FELA Claim

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.

I am very thankful and appreciative for the wonderful job that The Barnes Firm has done for me with my auto accident. I think I was lucky to have Landon and Ali worked on my case. They were always available for me.

I was in a car accident and contacted, The Barnes Firm. I was transferred to an attorney right away. The attorney was very pleasant and helpful. He answered all my questions. He set up an appointment that same week. The attorney himself, came over to my home. He went over the paperwork and explained the procedure very thoroughly. The attorney’s paralegal contacted me right away. The office has been in touch with me and genuinely concerned about my injuries. This firm was on top of my case. I highly recommend them. Please call The Barnes Firm.

I highly recommend The Barnes Firm and team of attorneys. Above and beyond all expectations.
