FELA Railroad Accidents

The Federal Employees Liability Act (FELA) and corresponding federal regulations dictate that a railroad maintains its fleet, ensuring that their trains are in good working order and free from defects. If a railroad fails to comply with these standards, they may be 100% liable for your damages.

The Federal Employees Liability Act (FELA) was enacted to help injured railroad workers and their families bring claims against their employers.  If a railroad employer is negligent, even in a small way, a FELA claim can be filed.  Complete fault on the part of the railroad is not required in order for you to file and win your FELA claim.

If you were in an accident that was caused by negligence, you should not be left footing the bill for your injuries and property damage. You need the guidance of a knowledgeable Lubbock auto accident lawyer to make sure that your legal rights and financial future are protected.

Railroad accidents can include:

  • Train crashes

  • Falls from trains

  • Slip and fall

  • Back injuries from lifting

Common injuries affecting railway workers include:

  • Head trauma and brain injuries

Railroads are large, powerful, wealthy companies, and they start preparing their defense as soon one of their employees is injured. You need someone on your side to start planning in your best interests. The railroad, its claim agents, investigators and lawyers fight hard to prove that the railroad has no responsibility in nearly every case.
