FELA Claims Attorneys

Railroad Worker Injury Representation

Are you a railroad worker who has been injured on the job? Your right to recover compensation is governed by the Federal Employer's Liability Act (FELA).

Unfortunately, the FELA claims process is complex and frustrating. Worse, injured workers can be taken advantage of by railroad companies trying to minimize claims.

At Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P., we are advocates for you, the injured railroad worker. For a free consultation about your options for compensation under FELA, call 800-773-6770 or contact us online. Our office is based in Houston, Texas, but we represent clients from all over the United States.

FELA Claims — How We Can Help

FELA was enacted in 1908 in recognition of the dangers and risks workers faced in the railroad industry. Since then, railroad workers have been able to file FELA claims for damages in either state or federal court. This allows workers to select the best forum in which to file a claim.

If you are a railroad worker who has on-the-job injuries, we can help you through all the steps involved in filing a FELA claim. At Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P., we have more than 51 combined years of experience helping railroad workers with FELA claims and advising them on retirement and disability benefits:

While the railroad company may be working to delay or minimize your claim, we will be advocating for you. From accident scene investigation to witness interviews, we will do whatever we can to help you recover financially from your work injury.
