SUPPORT BEGINS

Founded Steel & Moss LLP


According to the Federal Railroad Administration Office of Safety Analysis, nearly 1,500 railroad employees are injured each year in work-related accidents. Given the unusually dangerous nature of the profession, the federal government grants special protections to rail workers who withstand injury. Namely, the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) provides a means for railroad workers to recover monetary damages when they have been hurt.

FELA enables victims of rail accidents to obtain compensation for medical expenses, wage loss, physical and emotional suffering, and other considerations. However, it is not uncommon for injured rail workers to make missteps in the pursuit of a FELA claim, jeopardizing their ability to recover damages.
