The Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA) is one of the nation’s oldest laws, and it specifically provides protections for railroad workers. Those who work on the vast railroad system throughout the country are vulnerable to a wide range of hazards, and the law takes the matter seriously. If you have been injured in your capacity as a railroad worker, it’s time to reach out to an experienced FELA claims attorney in Hampton for the professional legal guidance you need.
FELA claims are closer to personal injury claims than they are to workers’ compensation insurance claims. This is because, in order to bring a successful FELA claim, you must demonstrate that your employer’s negligence caused you to be injured in the accident on the job.
Proving your employer’s liability in your FELA claim can be exceptionally challenging, but it’s important to recognize that your employer owes you – and all the company’s employees – a considerable duty of care, which translates to a significant responsibility to your safety. Most FELA claims hinge on breaches (or lapses) in this duty of care owed. Examples include:
The primary classifications for injuries that commonly lead to FELA claims include:
The law addresses your physical, financial, and emotional losses in terms of legal damages, and these generally fall into the following categories:
Ensuring that your claim accurately reflects your complete losses can play a pivotal role in your ability to fully heal.
