Injuries that occur at the workplace can happen in a split second. The railroad industry is aware that injuries can occur at the workplace and for this reason they have the Federal Employers' Liability Act, or FELA. This program is designed to help assist an injured employee that is injured on the job with medical costs and loss of wages.
The FELA was implemented in 1908 when the railroad industry had less safety standards and workers were frequently getting hurt or disabled. Even though safety and the railroad industry have come a long way since 1908, it is still an occupation that has a lot of injuries such as back and neck injuries, shoulder injuries or even death.
If you work in the railroad industry and have suffered an accident at work, contact an accident injury lawyer promptly to evaluate your case. An accident injury attorney is familiar with the FELA and they know the information that will be needed for you to win your case and receive the benefits that you deserve.
