Dos & Don'ts When Injured at a Railroad: Your FELA Rights
If you or a loved one was seriously injured while working for a railroad, this is a must-have guide. It outlines the dos and don'ts after you suffered the injury. The guide also details what the Federal Employers Liability Act (aka FELA) covers and much more.
Many railroad workers have described this book as "the bible on the FELA." Why is it important to understand your rights under the FELA? Because, as an injured railroad worker, you're not entitled to traditional worker's compensation. The FELA is a federal statute that is used when an injured rail worker like a conductor, engineer, trackman, yardman, etc. gets hurt while on the job.
It is critical for you and your family to understand what rights and responsibilities go with filing a FELA claim and you definitely should NOT depend on what a railroad claim agent tells you. Why? Because the claim agent works for the railroad. They are not looking out for your best interests.
