ST. LOUIS PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEYS SINCE 1949

EXPERIENCED ATTORNEYS, AGGRESSIVE REPRESENTATION

St. Louis FELA Lawyer

Starting in 1908, federal railroad workers, including engineers and brakemen, received coverage under FELA – Federal Employers’ Liability Act. This act was designed to protect the rights and safety of the nation’s railroad workers from dangerous working conditions.

If you were injured on the job, a FELA attorney at Goldblatt + Singer can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

What You Can Get From A FELA Claim

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 a lawyer with FELA experience.
