How Will An Attorney Help?

Because these are not typical workers’ compensation claims where fault does not need to be proven for compensation to be paid, they can become complex. Your attorney will work to gather all evidence necessary to prove that another party caused your injuries or illness. This can include:

  • Examining safety records and history
  • Getting your medical records reviewed by a trusted medical expert
  • Working with expert medical witnesses and economic experts to calculate your total losses
  • Securing expert railroad accident experts to analyze the evidence

Your attorney will handle all negotiations with other parties involved to reach a fair settlement on your behalf.

What Is The Federal Employers Liability Act?

The Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) was created by Congress in 1908 to protect railroad workers injured on the job. Though the industry has become safer in the over 100 years since the law’s passage, railroad workers still face risks every day.

Railroad workers who are injured do not automatically get benefits under FELA. They must prove that negligence took place. Injuries can be caused due to:

  • Faulty railroad equipment
  • Reckless or negligent behavior of a fellow employer or coworker
  • Negligence by a railroad agent or contractor

Some of the injuries covered under FELA include traumatic injuries such as broken or dislocated bones, spinal cord injuries, and traumatic brain injuries. Also covered are:

  • Emotional distress injuries
  • Asbestos exposure injuries and illnesses
  • Repetitive stress injuries
