Filing FELA Claims for Injured Railroad Workers
FELA is a unique law that applies only to railroad workers. For most situations, FELA actually reduces the burden of proof for ordinary negligence, thus making it easier to prove the railroad's liability.
Because FELA is such a unique law, it is important to work with an attorney who understands the nuances of federal law so you can obtain the maximum compensation available as a result of your injuries. If you are a railroad worker who has suffered an on-the-job injury, set up a free initial consultation with one of our FELA lawyers by calling 713-587-9668 (toll free 800-580-9121) or contacting us online.
