Dos & Don'ts When Injured at a Railroad: The Railroad Worker's FELA Rights | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Dos & Don’ts When Injured on the Job at a Railroad

a railroad worker's rights when injured on the job

If you were injured while working for a railroad, this is a must-have report. It outlines the dos and don’ts after you suffered the injury. The guide also details the Federal Employers Liability Act (aka FELA). 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. Instead, you can seek restitution through the FELA.

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.
