Since railroad work presents high levels of danger to employees, the Federal Employer's Liability Act (FELA) was created to provide insurance protection for railroad workers. Under the Federal Employer's Liability Act, railroad workers that are not covered by workers' compensation laws have the ability to sue companies for their injuries. The Federal Employer's Liability Act provides monetary payouts for pain and suffering based on negligence, rather than a benefits schedule that workers' compensation offers.
The Federal Employer's Liability Act covers all rairoad employees. Under the act, a work injury could be a result of an accident, repetitive work injury trauma, toxic exposure, and many other reasons. If you have suffered an injury as a railroad worker, you may file a Federal Employer's Liability Act claim. Contacting an employment lawyer can also help protect yourself and make sure you get just compensation for your pain and suffering.
If you are a railroad employee that was injured at work, you are protected under the Federal Employer's Liability Act. An employment lawyer can help you recover for your losses.
