Railroad Disease Claim - Statute of Limitations

In this video, Rick Shapiro and Randy Appleton, two experienced FELA attorneys, discuss the statute of limitations for a railroad disease claim filed under the Federal Employers Liability Act (i.e. the FELA). 

Our FELA/railroad worker injury law firm has represented numerous clients who developed life-threatening diseases such as mesothelioma after working on the railroad. However, we have also come across many rail workers who may have had a legitimate FELA claim, but failed to file within the statute of limitations. A statute of limitations is a finite window of time for an injured plaintiff to file a claim. For a railroad disease claim, the statute of limitations is three years from the time you learn, or reasonably should have learned, that you had the disease.
