Texas Railroad Worker Injury Lawyers

If you were injured due to your employer’s negligence while working on a railroad, you may have the right to recover compensation for your injuries under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA).

Railroad workers face risk and danger each day. When they are injured, they have rights provided by FELA, a law passed by Congress. Under FELA, injured railroad workers may file claims in state or federal court.

At Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner, our railroad injury lawyers work aggressively to obtain the compensation our clients need to rebuild their lives and face the future. Since the firm was founded in 1951, we have established our reputation by protecting the rights of seriously injured workers and their families.

Injuries to Texas Railroad Workers and the Public

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) 222-7211 (toll free 713-222-7211) or contacting us online.
