Railroad Worker Injury Lawyers

  • Are you a railroad employee who was hurt in an accident on the job or at your workplace?

Whether you work for Union Pacific (UP), CSX, Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF), Montana Rail Link, The Soo Line Railroad, CP rail, DM & IR RR, Amtrak, NS, Conrail, SEPTA, Canadian Pacific, LIRR, Metro-North, and Rochester & Southern/GENESEE, or any other railroad company, any compensation you receive for railroad worker injuries will come under the provisions of the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA.)

The railroad companies are very familiar with FELA. They have been fighting to overturn the railroad worker injury law since it was enacted in 1908. If you file a FELA claim, the railroads will use teams of investigators, private detectives and lawyers to try to minimize your recovery. You need the same dedication on your side to protect your interests.
