You have an undeniable right to legal counsel. No railroad company can legally fire an employee who has sustained an injury because they have sought the advice of an attorney, nor can the company discriminate against the employee for doing so.
To learn more, call The Maurer Law Firm at 845-896-5295.
Furthermore, under the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA) and the Federal Railroad Safety Act (FRSA), it is a crime to threaten, intimidate or otherwise prevent you from exercising your right to speak with or hire an attorney to represent you for a work-related injury.
