Are you or a loved one a railroad worker that was injured on the job? The Federal Employees Liability Act (FELA), Federal Safety Appliance Act (FSSA), and the Federal Locomotive Inspection Act (LIA) provide for recovery when railroad workers are injured on the job. Many common injuries as a railroad worker include spinal cord injuries, head injuries, repetitive stress and cumulative trauma injuries, and toxic exposure. You may be able to recover compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages, and mental anguish.
The FELA states that all railroad “common carriers” engaging in commerce are liable in damages to any employee suffering injury or death, resulting in whole or part, from the negligence of the railroad’s personnel or by any defect in the railroad’s equipment. In other words, to be negligent, it must be proved that the railroad did not adequately provide a reasonably safe working environment. And even if the railroad is only partially responsible for your injury, you may still recover damages.
Don’t trust the railroad’s attorneys in dealing with your claim alone. They are not working for your best interest. Don’t let the railroad company intimidate you and make you believe your claim is unfounded. Let attorney Anthony J. Milano evaluate your case and guide you through the FELA claim process to get what you deserve.
