Railroad / FELA Accidents and What You Need to Know
Railroad workers are not covered by traditional workers' compensation plans. Instead, they are covered by the Federal Employees Liability Act (FELA), which was created in 1908 to protect railroad workers and reduce the number of railroad-related work injuries. FELA gives injured railroad workers the right to sue their employer in cases of negligence, even if the employer is only partially responsible for the employee's injury.
If you are an injured railroad employee, you may be entitled to compensation under FELA. Finkelstein & Partners can help you with your case.
