FELA: Protecting Injured Railroad Workers
The Federal Employers Liability Act protects railway workers nationwide from being held liable for accidents and injuries that were not their fault.
Under this act, you as a railroad worker can hold your employer liable for any of the following:
- Unsafe work conditions
- Faulty equipment or tools
- Defective safety devices
- Lack of safety inspections
- Safety hazards in the workplace
- Inadequate training, supervision, assistance, or help
- Unreasonable work quotas
- Poor or no enforcement of safety rules and regulations
- Intentional acts of harm by other workers
Even when your injury is not your fault, filing a FELA claim is no simple task. You could face delays and obstacles as your employer seeks to minimize your claim or deny it altogether. This is why you need a skilled FELA attorney on your side.
