Railroad Workplace Trauma Lawyer

Railroad workers go to their jobs everyday in extremely dangerous working conditions. Locomotives, freight cars and tankers weigh many thousands of pounds. Even minor railroad accidents can result in serious and life-threatening physical injuries. In addition, railroad workers and passengers can suffer serious psychological damages after being in a rail accident or witnessing one. If you are a railroad worker or passenger involved in a rail accident that has caused you to suffer psychological damages, you have the right to file for compensation under the provisions of the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA) or common law.

Services for Injured Railroad Workers and Passengers Injured in Rail Accidents

I am attorney Ira M. Maurer, of Fishkill, New York. My law firm is recognized as one of the pre-eminent FELA litigation firms serving railroad workers and their families in New York and throughout the Northeastern U.S. I also represent individuals who suffered psychological injury as a result of being injured in a train accident while riding as a rail passenger.

I represent railroad workers injured on the job, as well as passengers injured in rail accidents in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and states throughout the Northeast U.S.

Psychological Injuries Are Very Real and Very Complex

Proving a case for PTSD and other psychological damages requires an in-depth understanding of the neurological and medical issues as well as the relevant case law. I have been involved in many of the most significant cases involving railroad injury claims and have earned a national reputation for results that are cited as precedent in similar cases.

As an injured railroad worker, you have federal law on your side. The FELA and the Federal Rail Safety Act (FRSA) ensure that your rights are protected while you seek fair compensation from your employer or the rail line responsible for your injuries and financial damages. However, the process can be frustrating if you do not understand the regulations and requirements for successful litigation. I have more than 30 years of experience helping injured railroad workers and their families get the money and medical benefits they are entitled to. I handle everything, while you focus on your health.
