FELA / Railroad and Train Injuries
Consult With Our FELA Attorneys Now
Railroad workers have been involved in one of the most dangerous professions in this country for the last few hundred years. Because of the incredible danger and the resulting high number of injuries and loss of life for these workers, Congress passed special legislation known as the Federal Employers' Liability Act to govern compensation of railroad injuries and death. Under the Act, the railroad is required to provide workers with a reasonably safe place to work, and when a railroader is injured, he or she may be entitled to compensation for lost earnings, pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, loss of enjoyment of life, and mental suffering.
If you or a loved one has sustained an injury while employed by a railroad company, the FELA lawyers at Yarborough Applegate will argue aggressively on your behalf to help ensure your rights are protected.
Common injuries for railroaders include:
- Repetitive stress injuries which cause injuries in joints, shoulders, knees, and carpel tunnel syndromes
- Back injuries
- Serious trauma from accidents in the rail yards
- Lung disease from exposure to fumes, dust, and diesel exhaust
- Hearing loss
- Asbestos related diseases, including Mesothelioma
