FELA Lawyers in Florence, Kentucky
Railroad work can be a tough and unpredictable job. Its unique demands are such that it requires its own set of laws designed to protect railroad workers and their families.
If you are a railroad employee who has been injured on the job, the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) may entitle you to significant compensation to pay for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
FELA was implemented after a series of serious injuries and deaths became associated with railroad work. With FELA in place, the railways faced costly reprimands if one of their workers were injured on the job.
Who Qualifies for FELA Benefits?
To qualify for FELA benefits, the injured railroad worker must meet specific conditions. An experienced Kentucky FELA lawyer will help determine if your potential case meets the following requirements:
- The railroad was responsible for unsafe working conditions,
- The injury was the result of defective railroad equipment, or
- The injury occurred as a result of another railroad worker’s negligence.
It is critical that you do not make any judgments about your potential case without first consulting with an attorney. As your railroad attorney we are able to examine the accident site, equipment, and interview co-workers to determine every source of potential evidence is taken into account.

In addition to how complicated FELA law can become during a claim, an injured railroad worker must also remember that the railway will have specialists working on their side whose job is to minimize or completely deny your injury claim.
