Seeking a FELA Lawyer for Train Crashes

While some collisions are avoidable, there are different types of personal injury claims. For example, if a railroad employee is injured in a train accident, then the claim would be included in the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) that allows railroad employees who are injured on the job to file a lawsuit to recover damages from their employer when negligence occurs on the part of the employer or another employee.

This act is not to be confused with worker’s compensation. Under conditions of FELA, the injured employee may recover punitive damages that they would not be entitled to under worker’s compensation. However, FELA is a complicated statute. Therefore, it is highly recommended that an injured employee or family of a killed employee to consult a FELA lawyer to protect the victim’s rights.
