I have been injured while working in a rail yard. What should I know about attempting to obtain compensation from my employer for my injuries? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Our Virginia railroad injury attorneys have learned that rail corporations will try nearly any method to convince the jury that you inflicted harm on yourself by breaking safety rules. Major railroads such as Amtrak, CSX and Norfolk Southern know they only can be held liable under the Federal Employers Liability Act or FELA, if evidence is shown the company acted negligently.
