Are you a railroad worker and been injured on the job? Railroad workers' job related injuries are covered under a special federal provision known as the Federal Employers Liability Act or FELA.
FELA is similar to workers' compensation, except that you have to prove that the railroad was negligent in your accident, instead of just the injury occurring on the job. This seemingly small distinction is why you should seek legal help immediately after an injury.
If it can be proven that the railroad was at fault for your injuries, you are entitled to four categories of damages. Past and future medical expenses, past and future wage loss, past and future disability and disfigurement, and past and future pain and suffering. These damages can add up to a sizable monetary award.

The Federal Employers Liability Act is an act that is yearly approved by Congress and provides for compensation to those who are injured while working for or on the US railroad system. If you are a railroad worker that has been injured on the job or have railroad injuries related to your job you could possibly be entitled to benefits under this act. You may also be prohibited from filing a railroad injuries lawsuit due to provisions within the act. This is why it is important to consult with a railroad injuries lawyer to better understand your rights where this is concerned. The FELA act is similar to the various state worker's compensation laws with the exception that you must prove a level of negligence on the part of the railroad for your compensation. If you can prove that it was the railroad at fault, then you are eligible for damages. FELA compensates for four different categories that your railroad injuries attorney can explain in detail, but they include medical expenses, loss of wages, disability, and pain and suffering. With the right assistance in this case you could look at a sizable award for your injury.
