The Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) was introduced in order to help protect railroad workers and their families from injuries occurring as a result of negligence on the part of their employers. FELA claims allow workers who have suffered serious injuries, or the families of workers who have been wrongfully killed, to seek substantial compensation for the pain and suffering they’ve had to endure. At the Disparti Law, we know that filing a FELA claim may be the only way for Chicago railroad workers and their families to get the justice they deserve in this difficult situation.
Filing FELA Claims
Sadly, a railroad worker can be injured or killed in any number of ways, including the following:
- Train collisions
- Rail yard hazards
- Gaps between platforms
- Malfunction of railroad crossing signals
When a railroad worker sustains serious injuries in these manners or, in the most tragic of circumstances, loses his or her life, it can cause a number of difficulties and hardships for the victim and/or their family. As such, filing a FELA claim and getting much-needed compensation is often critical for victims.
