National FELA Attorneys For Injured Railroad Workers

“The Federal Employers’ Liability Act was designed to put on the railroad industry some of the costs of the legs, arms, eyes and lives which it consumed in its operation. Not all these costs were imposed, for the Act did not make the employer the insurer. The liability which was imposed was the liability for negligence.” Justice William O. Douglas

The U.S. Congress passed the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) to give injured railroad workers a means for recovering compensation for medical costs, lost earnings and other financial damages, as well as general damages, including pain and suffering.

If you are a railroad worker who has suffered an injury or disability related to your employment, you may be entitled to file a claim against your employer to recover compensation for all of your harms and losses, financial and otherwise.
