Federal Employers Liability Act
In 1908, as the railroad industry was booming in the United States, the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) was passed in order to provide a remedy to injured railroad workers. Although the industry has lost significance in light of other forms of transportation, railroad workers still face the same threat of injury. Unsafe working conditions, exposure to dangerous substances or toxins, and general employer negligence still pose a risk of injury.
If you work in this industry, and were injured wholly or partially due to the acts of your company, a fellow employee or faulty equipment, you may have standing to recover damages under FELA. Also, while you pursue a lawsuit, Plaintiff Support can provide funding to help pay everyday expenses while you wait for a resolution to your claim.
