Locomotive Inspection Act Information and Your Legal Rights
The Locomotive Inspection Act (LIA) provides legal rights to railroad workers injured on a locomotive or by the locomotive's parts. Railroads cannot use contributory negligence as a defense if it violated the LIA. However, the LIA is only applicable when the locomotive is in motion. To learn more, watch this video and then contact our office for a free consultation.
