FELA (Federal Employers Liability Act) provides railroad employees and their families the right to recover workmans / workers compensation if the railroad worker is injured or killed in a railroad accident. Enacted in 1908, it also assures railroad employees have a safe work place. Thousands of railroad accidents occur each year. The result is nearly 10,000 injuries and deaths; sixty percent being railroad worker accidents. Negligence or faulty equipment has been at fault for more than 80% of those accidents.
Injuries can include back, neck, shoulder, brain damage, spine injuries or broken bones. Injuries and even death continue to result from railroad jobs. FELA protects the rights of railroad employees to cover medical bills, lost income and other costs related to an injury at work. Unfortunately waiting for a lawsuit with a FELA case can take a long time. Plaintiffs may begin to feel financially stressed.
