Railroad workers injured on the job have the right to file for money damages using the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA) process. The best FELA results are obtained by attorneys with decades of success who are well versed in the FELA law and federal regulations that apply to the railroad industry. The system, however, is often complicated and frustrating. Many injured workers and their families have difficulty understanding what compensation they are entitled to.

How FELA Works
The Federal Employers' Liability Act states that railroad workers injured on the job are entitled to seek compensation for all medical expenses, lost earnings, lost fringe benefits and pain and suffering related to their injuries and losses. You are also entitled to seek medical care and treatment from the doctors and medical specialists of your choice.
Retraining After an Injury
Injured railroad workers are entitled to reasonable work accommodation for their injuries, but employers are not required to create a new job. If you are permanently disabled from your job, I will guide you through the process of retraining.
Very few railroad companies have alternative positions open for hiring a retrained worker following an injury. I can help show you how other federal and state benefits may apply to help your family, including benefits under the Americans with Disability Act (ADA),
