The first thing that railroad workers need to understand about the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) when it comes to workplace injuries is that this act is quite different compared to Worker’s Compensation. FELA allows for full recovery of damages due to a negligent act of the railroad company or a co-worker. Because of this, railroad companies try their best to hide their negligence and to prevent you from collecting evidence of your injuries that can be used in a FELA case. Don’t buckle under the pressure – contact a professional lawyer with experience in FELA cases to help you claim compensation for the damages that you suffered.
