FELA: Compensating Railroad Accident Victims
Federal Employers’ Liability Act
The Federal Employers’ Liability Act (“FELA”) protects railroad employees who are injured on the job. Those who are injured while working for a railroad may be able to file for benefits to cover health care costs and lost wages associated with their injury on the job.
Recovering for Your On-the-Job Injuries
When you are injured, the last thing you want to worry about is whether or not you will be able to get compensation for those injuries. If you are employed by a railroad company-even if your primary job duties are not performed in or around trains-you may be protected by FELA if you were injured while working. If you have been injured and are seeking to bring an action under FELA, contact our skilled railroad attorneys today.
