If you have been injured while working for a train or railroad company you are entitled to make a FELA claim against your negligent employer to recover compensation to cover the cost of your on-the-job accident. Damages you may be entitled to include medical expenses, lost income, compensation for your pain and suffering, compensation for scars and disfigurements, compensation for ongoing disability or physical impairment, and more.
However, although Federal law entitles you to recover significant financial damages to safeguard you and your family’s future, you should not expect your employer to willingly pay you the full and fair compensation you deserve. The fact that you’ve been employed by the same company for years and years becomes irrelevant the moment you are injured. The train company’s sole priority is to protect their profits. Your only hope is to hire an aggressive Ft Worth railroad injury lawyer to fight to your legal rights and make sure that you get the maximum compensation available to you.
Don’t Make a Mistake Which Could Jeopardize Your Claim
As a professional railroad worker, you know that there are hazards related to your work. That is why you have taken your work as a railroad employee seriously; whether you are a brakeman, engineer, flagman, signalman, conductor, switchman, yardmaster, welder, or maintenance-of-way worker.
The railroad employees charged with preventing you from recovering fair compensation also take their job seriously. These claims adjustors are not used to working in the rail yard or on the trains. They spend their careers behind desks – and it is their job to prevent injured workers from receiving the full and fair compensation they are entitled to under Federal law.
They will try to get you to accept a quick settlement – often a figure much, much lower than what you actually deserve. The reason they do this is so they can resolve your case for a minimal loss before you have had time to consult with an experienced injury attorney.
Do not fall for the claim’s adjustor’s dirty tricks. Make sure that you are fully informed of your legal rights and that you get an equally aggressive injury attorney to go into battle for you.
You deserve fair compensation.
