Shapiro & Appleton

I felt something in my back while I was doing a work task several days ago and one of my co-workers knows about it. I didn't file an accident report but now my doctor says I may need to get an MRI. Is it too late for me to make a work-related claim or file an accident report?

It's definitely not too late because the federal law governing worker claims for on‑the‑job injuries does not require an accident report ever have been filed.  Also, a railroad cannot fire you for simply making a report at the point where your problem manifests into a serious injury.  Consult with an experienced railroad accident injury attorney at our firm if this is a situation you find yourself in.
