Suppose you are a railroad worker injured while doing your job in the South Hampton Roads region. In that case, you may wonder what options are available to recover compensation for your damages like lost wages, medical costs, and others. For most injured workers in other industries, a workers’ compensation claim is the proper channel to obtain remedy.
For railroad workers injured on the job, however, an action brought under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) is the primary option for obtaining remedy. If you are injured as a railroad worker, having an experienced railroad worker injury attorney advocate for you will ensure you obtain adequate compensation for your injuries.
Unlike a traditional workers’ compensation claim, which does not require an injured worker to prove the negligence of his employer, a FELA claim requires an injured worker to prove that his injury was caused by the negligence of his employer. Despite this hurdle, a FELA claim offers significant protection to an injured worker in the following respects:
An experienced South Hampton Roads railroad work injury attorney can help with your railroad injury claim in the following ways:
The law provides that a FELA Claim must be filed within three years. If you have been injured as a railroad worker in South Hampton Roads, contact the attorneys at Hampton Injury Law PLC for a free case evaluation to determine what options are available to you.
