Personal Injury Claims: Railroad Worker Accidents

Last updated 6 months ago

When railroad workers are injured, they do not receive workers’ compensation. Instead, they are subject to the Federal Employers Liability Act. Read on to learn more about this act and how it protects railroad workers.

Under the FELA, a railroad worker must prove that the railroad company, a fellow employee, a contractor, or defective equipment was to some degree responsible for his injury. FELA follows the principle of comparative negligence, which provides that an employee can be found partly responsible for his own injuries and receive only part of the damages he was awarded.

If you’re a railroad worker who was injured on the job, you deserve full compensation for your injuries. To discuss filing a claim under FELA, call Malman Law in Chicago at (312) 983-6193.
