Railroad Worker Injuries And FELA
Railroad workers know that their jobs are dangerous and involve the risk of injury. When you are injured on the job, you are covered by the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA). However, FELA requires you to prove that your injuries were caused by the railroad’s negligence.
