My Fellow North Carolina F.E.L.A. Lawyer John C. Describes How Railroad Engineers Get Hurt on the Job | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

I hope you will check out the information which my law partner has added to our website about on-duty railroad injuries to the people who run locomotives.  It has been our pleasure over the years to represent many North Carolina (NC) railroad men in the various places throughout the state where there is a lot of railroad activity including Rocky Mount, Raleigh, Charlotte, Ashville, and Wilmington.  Our railroad worker F.E.L.A. practice is the backbone of our firm and has been for over two decades.  We not only represent engineers, but all other railway crafts including conductors, signalmen, Carmen, trackmen, brakemen, welders, and all other maintenance of way workers.  Our founding law partner was formerly a Norfolk Southern (NS) brakeman/conductor and when he opened our firm in the 1980’s he used the slogan “railroaders representing railroaders” to show how knowledgeable we were about railroading and how connected we felt to the people we were privileged to represent.  That same spirit is carried on today at our firm.
