Injured on the Railroad? Why You Need a FELA Attorney in Your Corner

Posted by Brad Ponder | Mar 05, 2024 | 0 Comments

Working on the railroad is a demanding job, and unfortunately, it also carries a high risk of injury. If you've been hurt while working for a railroad company, you may be entitled to compensation under the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA). But navigating a FELA claim can be complex, and having an experienced attorney on your side is critical to maximizing your recovery.

Why FELA is Different

Unlike most workers' compensation cases, FELA claims require proving the railroad company's negligence contributed to your injury. This means you need to show they failed to provide a safe work environment or failed to properly train employees. An experienced FELA attorney at Ponder Legal Group will:

  • Investigate the cause of your accident: We'll gather evidence to establish what happened and how the railroad company's actions or inactions played a role.
  • Understand complex railroad regulations: FELA has specific rules and procedures. We'll ensure your claim complies with all legal requirements.
  • Fight for full compensation: You deserve compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and potential future losses. We'll fight to get you the maximum recovery possible.

The Benefits of an Experienced FELA Attorney

Railroad companies have significant resources and legal teams at their disposal. An experienced FELA attorney at Ponder Legal Group can level the playing field. We understand:

  • The intricacies of FELA law: We stay up-to-date on the latest legal developments to ensure your case is built on a strong foundation.
  • The unique challenges of railroad injuries: Railroad injuries can be severe and life-altering. We'll fight for the compensation you need to move forward.
  • The importance of negotiation and litigation: We'll aggressively negotiate with the railroad company to secure a fair settlement. However, if necessary, we're prepared to take your case to court.
