Protecting The Rights Of Railroad Workers

Working on railroads is a dangerous job. While employers are expected to conduct safety inspections and provide adequate training to employees, hazardous conditions, poor training and insufficient supervision can lead to catastrophic injuries.

At Bizzieri Law Offices, we are knowledgeable in Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) claims. FELA was enacted to help railroad workers recover for injuries sustained on the job. Differing from any other workers' compensation and personal injury case, these are subject to their own procedures and restrictions. We leverage our over a decade of experience to help you get the compensation you deserve.

You Deserve A Safe Work Environment

The most essential part of a FELA claim is establishing that your employer somehow failed to provide a reasonably safe work environment. That failure led to your injury. Railroad companies and other employers have a duty to establish a reasonably safe work environment by providing the proper:

  • Equipment
  • Tools
  • Safety devices
  • Training programs

If you are a railroad worker who suffered an injury on the job, you may be able to recover compensation for past and future lost wages, medical treatment, pain and suffering and mental distress. A FELA claim can also compensate a railroad worker's spouse and children if the injury results in the worker's death.

Hiring a lawyer experienced in FELA cases is the first step toward proving your case. We can help you find experts and guide you through the complicated issues that arise in railroad injury cases.
