FELA is the Federal Employers Liability Act, a federal law designed to protect the railway worker and provide the worker with compensation for railway related injuries.
If you or a loved one suffered an injury at work that is FELA related and you want to know if you can bring a FELA accident lawsuit, contact us at (877) 561-0000 to speak with our FELA lawyers. We handle FELA accidents nationwide (in conjunction with local counsel) and we’re only paid if we win the case.
Nowadays most FELA injuries are preventable, if the worker is given the proper equipment, training and if there is ample time to consider safety measures. Unfortunately, often times work is rushed, safety steps are overlooked and training is not provided, which is a recipe for a FELA fatality or serious calamity.
Some Common types of FELA Injuries are:
- Broken Bones
- Head Injuries
- Railway Related Paralysis
- Railway Caused Paraplegia or Quadriplegia
- Railway Injury Amputations or Severing of Limbs or Digits
- Skull Fractures
- Railway caused crushed body parts
- Railway Accident Wrongful Death
There are various ways you can commence a FELA accident lawsuit – if you had an injury on the rail while you were working there and sometime latent injuries caused by long term railway work.
Depending on the severity of your case, we can bring an action to recover:
- Life Long Care
- Medical expenses

- Long-term treatment
- Loss of Employment
- As well as compensation for all your FELA related consequences
