FELA Litigation

Louisville Railroad Injury Attorney

Railroad Worker Injuries and FELA Claims

The Federal Employers Liability Act, also known as FELA, provides injured railroad workers the right to sue their employers for injuries sustained on the job. The challenges people face after a railroad injury can seem overwhelming, particularly if the injury is serious or prevents a person from returning to work. At Dolt, Thompson, Shepherd & Conway, PSC, our team of Louisville injury attorneys help individuals who have sustained a serious railroad injury. We help injured workers obtain the benefits owed to them for their railroad injury.

If you are a railroad worker and are not covered under workers’ compensation, you have the right to sue your employer under FELA. FELA is vastly different from workers’ compensation — the benefit schedule is not predetermined. FELA considers the fault of each party; however an injured worker is entitled to make a claim even if they had a percentage of the fault. Injured railroad workers are also entitled to a civil jury.
