Railroad Injury

If you’re a railroad worker injured on the job, you have a right to pursue compensation under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA). We have the knowledge and resources to effectively represent our clients in even the most complex railroad accident cases.

Railroad Retaliation

A federal law (FRSA) gives railroad personnel the freedom to raise concerns about safety without worrying about being punished. Under the FRSA, you may be eligible for reinstatement, back pay, and extra damages if you experienced illegal retaliation.

Serious Personal Injury

Life can be dangerous. We take risks every day, and without notice, you may find yourself in a situation where you have been seriously hurt or injured due to the fault of someone or something else. The effects of a significant or catastrophic injury are long-lasting and life-changing.
