In train accident injuries and fatalities, victims/families are entitled to receive compensation for their often catastrophic injuries or the wrongful death of their loved ones. For railroad employees, the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) mandates that railroad owners compensate workers for injuries/fatalities suffered on the job. Some causes include:
- insufficient safety procedures
- Improper supervision
- Dangerous/toxic materials
- Inadequate working conditions
- Human mistakes
For other people, the FELA does not apply. If you are an ordinary citizen and you attempt to deal with the situation on your own, you can count on being entangled in a protracted investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) as well as intense law enforcement and insurance investigators/attorneys involvement. Whether you are a railroad employee or a non-employee victim, you require the services of our law firm. Although FELA provides protections for railroad workers, federal oversight is minimal and in order to make sure that you receive all of the compensation that you deserve, you need our experienced and aggressive representation. For others, it can be tempting to give in to low-ball offers by insurance companies and accept whatever is offered but we sincerely advise you against that. This is just what they are hoping for and it is a mistake!
Rest assured that with 60 years of courtroom experience, we will fight for your rights and do all that is possible to help you establish that you were seriously injured and hold the responsible party accountable.
