Railroad Injuries – Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) Summary – Railroad (rail road) work accidents are covered under the Federal Employers Liability Act or FELA. Railroad work accidents can result in serious injuries and liability for the parties involved. If the accident is bad enough, or the injuries are serious enough, it may be necessary to get a lawyer or attorney involved. It may be necessary to file a lawsuit against the person who caused the accident or injuries. If you are injured through no fault of your own, you may have a legal case or legal claim that can result in a settlement for monetary damages. The law is on your side, but there are time limits that govern how long you have to file a claim, and other restrictions. You need to consult a lawyer or attorney so that they can decide the merits of your legal case. Amtrak, BNSF (Burlington Northern Santa Fe), CSX, Norfolk Southern, Union Pacific are some of the major railroads whose train workers are covered under the FELA program.
Railroad Injuries – Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) Video Transcript – Are you a railroad worker and been injured on the job? Railroad workers’ job related injuries are covered under a special federal provision known as the Federal Employers Liability Act or FELA. FELA is similar to workers’ compensation, except that you have to prove that the railroad was negligent in your accident, instead of just the injury occurring on the job. This seemingly small distinction is why you should seek legal help immediately after an injury. If it can be proven that the railroad was at fault for your injuries, you are entitled to four categories of damages. Past and future medical expenses, past and future wage loss, past and future disability and disfigurement, and past and future pain and suffering. These damages can add up to a sizable monetary award. Receiving FELA compensation is your right, but the law is very complex. The Helios Legal Group can help. And there are no upfront fees. Don’t be a victim. Get the help you deserve. Our intake specialists can answer any questions you may have. Call our FELA compensation hotline for a free, no obligation consultation right now!
