If you have been injured while working for the railroad company in Fort Worth – whether on a train, in the rail yard, or in any other capacity – you have a right to recover compensation. However, interstate railroad companies’ employees are not covered by standard workers comp insurance – instead, you will have to make what is known as a FELA injured railroad workers claim.
In order to make a successful claim and achieve the full justice that you deserve, it is important that you act quickly and make good decisions early on. Remember that you will be going up against a major business – and they won’t want to pay you the fair damages that you deserve unless they are forced to do so. Unfortunately, once you’ve suffered an injury on the job, your many years of loyalty go out the window. You and your employer are suddenly adversaries.
Be Sure You Fully Understand Your Legal Rights
Information is power – especially when you’ve suffered a serious injury and are trying to recover fair compensation to cover the cost of your accident-related medical bills, lost income and other expenses. Our law firm’s website has a ton of information designed specifically to help injured railroad workers in Texas understand their legal rights.

If you are concerned about the cost of hiring a lawyer, don’t be. Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means we don’t get paid a cent until your case is successfully resolved. Even then, you don’t owe us anything – instead, our payment is taken as a percentage of the total amount recovered on your behalf. There are no upfront fees required. No hourly fee. No retainer. This means that everyone – regardless of their financial situation – has access to expert legal help.
