Train and Railroad Worker Injuries: Understanding Your Legal Rights Under FELA

If you or someone you love has been injured while working for a train or railroad company, you will probably quickly find yourself out of your depth. It is highly recommended that you consult with an experienced Dallas-Fort Worth FELA attorney as soon as possible, in order to ensure that you are fully aware of your legal options, and that your legal rights are protected.

 

Why is a train injury lawyer necessary?

There is a lot of money at stake in any serious injury. The good news is that under the law governing railroad and train injuries - the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA) - there are no caps or limits to the amount of compensation you can recover. So long as you have a capable train and railroad injury lawyer fighting on your side, it is possible to get the railroad company to pay you the full and fair compensation you deserve, so that you and your family are not out of pocket and that your life is – apart from your injury – otherwise unaffected.

 

The problem is, of course, that paying you fair compensation means a big hit to the railroad's bottom line. No matter how loyal or hardworking an employee you might have been, they will not want to pay you the full dollar amount that Federal law says that you are entitled to. Sadly, this means that you cannot trust the railroad's representatives once you have been injured on the job. You must hire an independent personal injury attorney to handle your claim on your behalf.
