Nationally Recognized FELA Railroad Injury Attorney
In the days prior to the founding of state workers' compensation insurance laws, injured railroad employees working on interstate rail projects often had no recourse for recovering costs for medical costs, lost compensation and pain and suffering after an injury. Teddy Roosevelt pushed Congress to pass the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA) in response to the high number of injuries and deaths to workers building our nation's railroads in the late 19th century and early 20th century.
People filing an injury claim under the provisions of the FELA can be treated by the doctor of their choice. Compensation for the damages can be recovered for lost wages, pain and suffering, medical costs and lost fringe benefits.

Are You Eligible to Seek Compensation Under the FELA Law?
Railroad workers injured in rail accidents, are only covered under FELA laws if the accident involved an interstate railroad or a railroad that maintains tracks that are used by an interstate railroad. Unlike state workers' compensation plans, which are a form of insurance, workers on interstate railroad lines have the option of seeking financial damages through the state and federal courts.
Railroad Passenger Injuries
Passenger injury claims can be brought against the liable railroad, based upon what is called common law negligence.
