Railroad Injury Cases/FELA
Railroad workers are subject to special laws when it comes to workplace accidents. While other professionals can receive financial support through the workers’ compensation system, railroad workers are protected under the Federal Employers Liability Act.
FELA is a federal law designed to hold railroad companies accountable for the injuries suffered by their employees. FELA allows injured workers to file a lawsuit against their employers, enabling them to pursue compensation directly.
