Firm Overview

Railroad Worker Injury Attorneys

If you have been injured as a railroad employee, you need attorneys who are well versed in the provisions of the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA), which governs your right to recovery. FELA establishes a specific process for recovery and identifies the damages you may recover. Your employer will employ all resources available to minimize the amount you are paid.

The lawyers at Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P., in Houston, Texas, handle all types of personal injury and wrongful death claims, as well as most commercial litigation, with an emphasis on claims under FELA. Contact the firm for a free initial consultation.

Though Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P., was formed in 2000, attorneys Steve Gordon and R. Todd Elias bring over 39 of combined experience to the representation of injured railroad workers. The firm fights aggressively to protect the rights of clients, providing dedicated and personalized services to victims of railroad company negligence. The firm has the experience and resources to pursue recovery from large corporate defendants, as well as big insurance companies. The lawyers have negotiated many multi-million dollar settlements and won similar judgments on behalf of injured persons.

The firm focuses its efforts on a small number of cases to ensure that each client receives the highest level of personal attention. All FELA claims are handled by an attorney, not by a paralegal or an associate. The firm provides you with a personal cell phone number for your attorney so that you can call when you need to.

The railroad industry has become a safer place to work because of the impact of successful claims under FELA, as well as advances in technology. Nonetheless, railroad worker injuries still occur on a regular basis. If you have been injured as a train company employee, contact the law firm of Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P., for a free initial consultation.
