FELA Railroad Claims
Texas Railroad Accident Attorneys FELA Claims
Railroad employees who are hurt on the job are covered by a federal law called the Federal Employers' Liability Act, better known as the FELA. Under the FELA, railway companies have a duty to provide a safe work environment for railroad employees. If the employer fails to enact or enforce appropriate safety measures, the railroad may be liable for injuries or deaths in the workforce. If you have been injured because a train derailed or a coupling separated, contact a FELA claims attorney to learn about your rights.
