Goldblatt Singer Has Experience in FELA Cases
Starting in 1908, federal railroad workers, including engineers and brakemen, received coverage from FELA - Federal Employers' Liability Act. This act was designed to protect the rights and safety of the nation’s railroad workers from negligence and dangerous working conditions. If you were injured on the job, a FELA lawyer at Goldblatt Singer can help you fight for the compensation you deserve. Because of the dangerous nature of railroad work, FELA claims often include:
- Loss of earnings
- Physical pain and suffering
- Disfigurement or scarring
- Permanent or partial disability
Unlike workers’ compensation, FELA is a fault based system and railroad injury cases can be complex. A FELA lawyer can investigate your claim and help build a case for negligence on behalf of the railroad or their agents. Under FELA, injured workers are entitled to a trial, and as a result, FELA awards are generally much higher than those of workers’ compensation claims. It is essential to hire the best personal injury lawyer with FELA experience.
