Protecting Injured Railroad Workers — Amtrak — Burlington Northern/Santa Fe — SEPTA — CONRAIL — Northfolk Southern
Railroad workers have been protected from injuries on the job for longer than workers’ compensation has been in existence. The Federal Employees Liability Act (FELA) was originally enacted in 1908. It was established because most railroad worker’s injuries are devastating, and often have lasting impacts on the lives of victims. FELA ensures that railroad employees are not left bearing the financial burden of their injuries. Our Philadelphia FELA accident lawyers are determined that you receive the full value of the past and future costs of the injuries you have suffered as a railroad accident victim. This includes pain and suffering associated with your injuries.
What Damages are Available to Railroad Accident Victims?
The railroad industry is one of the oldest industries in our country, with billions of dollars in assets. Our Philadelphia FELA accident attorneys help you take on these large entities so that you are not left bearing the financial burden of your on-the-job injuries. Railroad companies do everything they can to avoid financial responsibility to their employees. Do not negotiate with them directly, because your employer is your adversary when you are negotiating a settlement for a railroad accident. They do not offer full and fair compensation out of a sense of duty, and only try to pay for the medical costs of your injuries. Our Philadelphia FELA accident lawyers hold railroad companies accountable to pay for the physical and emotion costs of your injuries.
The damages you are entitled to recover under FELA include compensation for:
- Disability pay
- Funeral costs
- Loss of limb
- Loss of mobility
- Lost employment benefits
- Lost quality of life
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Past and future lost wages
