FELA Lawyers for Railroad Union Members
If you are a member of the United Transportation Union, the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way, or any other rail workers union and have been injured on the job, your opportunity to recover for your injuries will be governed by the Federal Employers' Liability Act, also known as FELA. When you have been injured, you may be contacted directly by a union-designated attorney. You do not have to hire union-designated legal counsel. You want experienced FELA lawyers who will fight to protect your rights.

Though we have many railroad workers, we are non union-designated lawyers. Our goal is to help you recover full and fair compensation for all your losses. We will not recommend to settle your lawsuit quickly for pennies on the dollar. Yes, there is an economic benefit to our firm to successfully representing you but our paramount concern is your outcome not ours!
As a railroad worker, you may not file a claim for compensation under state workers' compensation laws. Your sole remedy for recovery is under the provisions of FELA. It is essential that you work with attorneys with experience successfully handling FELA personal injury claims.
We take only a small number of cases each year, so that we can provide each client with a high level of customer service. You will even have access to our personal cell phone number, so that you can call us any time you need to talk. Now, what lawyer do you know or have you ever heard of that would do that?
In our years of representing United Transportation Union (UTU), Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees (BMWE), Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen (BLE), and other union railroad employees, we have seen significant improvements in the safety of railroad work. Nonetheless, serious injuries still occur. If you have been injured and want experienced legal counsel to protect your interests, contact Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P., for a free initial consultation.
