Birmingham FELA Attorneys

When a railroad employee is injured while working, federal law permits him or her to file a lawsuit to obtain compensation for those injuries. This is different from other types of workers' compensation because it allows the employee not only to get compensatory damages for lost wages and medical expenses, but also allows the employee to be awarded punitive damages from the railroad. Railroads are supposed to comply with numerous rules to ensure the safety of their employees, so the law allows punitive damages as a punishment to them for their negligence.

The Federal Railroad Administration reported that there were over 4,000 deaths, injuries, and occupational illnesses among railroad employees in 2010. If you have been injured while working for a railroad, you need a Birmingham FELA attorney to help you protect your rights and make sure you are properly compensated for your injury.Contact us today to see how we can help you.
