If you are a railroad worker and have had an accident at work, you want experienced attorneys to help you recover compensation for your injuries. Any damages that you recover will be available under the provisions of the Federal Employers' Liability Act, also known as FELA.
At the law firm of Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P., we have over 51 years of combined experience representing railroad workers throughout Ohio who have been injured at work. We have successfully handled FELA claims involving all types of railroad injuries, including head, back, neck, knee and shoulder injuries. Contact us to schedule a free initial consultation.
Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P. also represents FELA claimants for repetitive or cumulative trauma claims. For an in-depth discussion of the different types of cumulative claims please visit:
The U.S. Congress enacted FELA in recognition of the dangers inherent with employment in the railroad industry. FELA establishes the legal authority for railroad workers to recover compensation for injuries suffered due to the negligence (in whole or in part) of a railroad carrier, its agents, servants or employees. Under FELA, if you have been injured on the job as a railroad worker, you can file suit to recover damages in state or federal court.
FELA also makes it easier to show liability, reducing the burden of proof in ordinary negligence situations, and waiving the need to prove negligence where the railroad violated a safety statute or regulation.
Because we want each client to receive our full attention and a high level of customer service, we take only a small number of cases. Your claim won't be given to an associate or a paralegal. You will have our personal cell phone number, so that you can call us any time you need to talk.
Nonetheless, we know that the railroad industry remains a dangerous place to work. If you have had an accident working on a train and want experienced lawyers to guide you through the process and help you get full and fair compensation for your injury, contact Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P., for a free initial consultation.
