Train Derailment Injuries

Train derailments have the potential to be catastrophic for the public at large but also for any railroad employees working in the area. Train derailment injuries may vary from traumatic bodily injury due to a railroad crash all the way to lethal poisoning due to a toxic spill in the accident. The impact of an FELA railroad accident on a railroad worker can be significant and life-altering.

Railroad work injuries sustained in a train derailment may qualify for full compensation under the Federal Employers Liability Act if the FELA claim lawyer proves negligence in the train derailment by the railroad employer. Basically, the attorney must show that the railroad failed to provide a safe work environment. FELA railroad injury accident lawyers have special knowledge of the railroad industry and the laws that apply to successfully navigate an FELA claim through the legal complexities of the applicable federal law.
