Our railways are vital links across our country, whether transporting machinery and other goods, or our families on scenic vacations. If you are a railroad employee who has been injured on the job, or exposed to dangerous solvents, there is a specific federal law providing you with protection: the Federal Employment Liability Act (FELA). Enacted in 1906 due to the high number of railroad deaths in the late 19th century and early 20th century, FELA’s protections are as important today as they were a century ago. And you need a qualified attorney to assist you in securing the compensation to which you are entitled, including wage loss, future wage loss, medical expenses and treatments, pain and suffering, and for partial or permanent disability. Contact the lawyers at Rieders, Travis to provide you with the representation you deserve.
