The FELA LAW
The unique dangers faced by rail employees led to the creation of the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) of 1907. This federal law governs rights for injured railway employees, rather than state law. FELA carries a unique requirement that the injured worker demonstrate that employer negligence caused their injuries.
Successfully proving negligence under this specialized federal law and regulations governing railway standards requires experience and understanding of the unique legal standards governing rail safety. The partners at Steel, Moss & Ebert are experienced railroad attorneys who have been serving rail workers for decades.
Our railroad injury lawyers are intimately familiar with the regulations, legal precedents, and technical issues involved in successfully litigating railroad related accidents, and have handled hundreds of these cases in their careers.
