Why Work With a Non-Union FELA Lawyer?

SPEAK TO AN ATTORNEY TODAY

When injured you will be contacted by a railroad claim agent. This claim agent will attempt to take a statement, direct you to company doctors and dissuade you from seeking counsel with a qualified FELA attorney. At this time, a union-designated attorney might also contact you to facilitate a settlement with the claim agent.

It is imperative, to know your rights and consult a qualified, experienced non-union FELA attorney who represents you, not the union and not the railroad company. Due to the legal complexities involved and the serious injuries typically sustained, you want to be confident that the railroad accident lawyer you hire is committed to a successful outcome for you.

FELA/Worker Injury

A 15-year machinist for Union Pacific Railroad was injured when a locomotive coupled into his blue flagged locomotive in the diesel shop at Union Pacific’s Houston facility. Although the machinist failed to engage the shop derails and acknowledge the track alarm, the contention was that Union Pacific employee took one minute and forty-four second water break during a walk around prior to the coupling.

During this water break, the machinist blue flagged his locomotive and began working. Burwell Nebout filed suit against Union Pacific Railroad in Harris County. After a two-week trial in the 157th District Court in Harris County, the jury awarded the machinist $566,105. The jury determined that Union Pacific Railroad violated the federal regulation that absolutely prohibits coupling into a blue flagged locomotive.
