Railroad employees face dangerous work conditions every day they go to work. The railroad industry is one of the most dangerous industries in the country. Railroad accidents can be caused by poor safety standards, unsafe working conditions, negligent supervision, and hazardous materials.
Injuries such as head injuries, neck and back injuries, broken bones, amputations, and injured joints are commonplace among railroad employees who are hurt at work each year.
The federal government created the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) to protect railroad employees who are hurt on the job. You may be able to recover past and future medical expenses, past and future lost wages, pain, and suffering, disfigurement, and disability. However, in order to recover, a railroad employee must prove that the railroad’s negligence caused the injuries. Therefore, it is extremely important to retain a lawyer who is experienced in proving this type of negligent conduct.
