Help With A Broad Range Of Railroad Accident Cases
There are four main laws that apply to railroad injury claims. Our injury lawyers have handled numerous cases related to these laws, giving them the knowledge and information necessary to handle yours as well. These are the laws that likely apply to your claim:
- The Locomotive Inspection Act: Imposes safety regulations for locomotive equipment. An employer who violates this law may be liable for an injured worker’s damages.
- The Railroad Safety Appliance Act (SAA): Mandates that railroad companies provide safe working environments for employees or could face severe penalties.
- Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA): Protects your right to file a claim in state or federal court against your employer and to have a jury trial if necessary.
- Title 49 U.S.C. Section 20109: Grants protections to whistleblowers who report safety or labor law violations committed by railroad employers.
We explain the laws to you in plain English so you can understand your rights. Then, we help you explore the full range of your legal options. We are committed to recovering maximum compensation for your damages and righting the wrongs committed by your employer.
