Injury to a railroad worker is governed by a different set of laws than those pertaining to a passenger injured in a train accident. Even if that worker's responsibilities or actions may have contributed in part to the injury, he or she is still entitled to compensation if the worker can demonstrate negligence on the part of the railroad was also a cause.
Our experienced attorneys are well versed in the laws governing railroad and other workplace injuries, Workers' compensation cases, and other related matters. We can help railroad workers navigate the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) that regulates recovery for their injuries.
