With over 233,000 miles of railroad tracks in America, railroad track accidents occur at a staggering and sobering rate. Injuries on the tracks stemming from a train crash, derailment or equipment malfunction can be life-threatening.
Obtaining Monetary Compensation as a Railroad Worker
If you have been injured in a locomotive accident as a railroad worker, you are entitled to take the responsible parties to court by hiring a railroad accident lawyer. Under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA), your railroad worker injury attorney will have the opportunity to demonstrate that other railroad employees or the owners of the railroad failed to perform an act that would ensure the safety of the crew. It may also be the case that someone did something that caused the accident to occur, and your railroad accident lawyer can work to prove this claim as well.
What Your Monetary Compensation Will Entail
Under FELA, you may be able to receive the following compensation:
Pain and suffering
Loss of income
