Railroad workers are not covered by workers’ compensation law but rather a complex set of laws called the Federal Employers Liability Act, or FELA. If you work in the railroad industry and have suffered a workplace injury, it is important to consult with a FELA attorney who is experienced in handling claims.
Many times railroad companies deny these claims and attempt to limit any recovery, so it is critical to have a FELA lawyer who will fight for you and your family.
At Trapp & Geller, our FELA attorneys represent injured railroad workers from Chicago, throughout Cook County and across Illinois. We can help you pursue fair and just compensation for your railroad accident injury.
Contact us today online or by telephone at 312-818-2591 to discuss your case with an experienced FELA law firm.
Our Chicago FELA attorneys have won numerous cases for injured railroad workers. Examples of accidents that can result in FELA claims include:
Under FELA, injured railroad workers are entitled to reimbursement for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages. In order to be eligible for FELA benefits, the injured worker must be able to prove that the injury was sustained on the job and that it was caused at least in part by negligence by the employer, a fellow employee or equipment manufacturer.
