federal employers’ liability act (fela)

Our firm has represented numerous injured railroad workers in trial and settlement. We have proven that many short-line railroads are covered by the Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA) and that railroad workers should recover their future lost earning capacity even if they return to work after an injury.

Work with one of our experienced lawyers to find out if you have a FELA claim for traumatic injuries or repetitive stress injuries to your back, neck, shoulders or knees, or respiratory injuries resulting from inhaled exhaust or fumes.

Notable Case: $900,000 – DeSoto Railroad Carman from Scaffolding Accident:

Faerber & Anderson, P.C., obtained one of the largest settlements ever received by a railroad carman without going to trial. Our firm proved that a defective scaffolding failed, causing the carman to fall 10 feet to the bottom of a hopper car. Our attorneys retained experts to build a similar scaffold to demonstrate the unsafe nature of the railroad’s design.

talk to us before you fill out any forms

It is important to take your injuries seriously. Seek medical help immediately. Many of our clients try to “push through” the pain of an injury, and underestimate the lasting physical and financial impact the injury might have on their lives.

You will be asked to complete a personal injury report. Many railroads have created confusing forms that can be difficult to complete and can hurt your FELA case. It is always best to talk to an attorney before you fill out any forms.

To recover for your injuries, you must prove the railroad did something wrong; any fault on your part can decrease or eliminate the amount of your recovery.
