Railroad/Train Accidents

FELA Claim Attorney in Los Angeles, CA

FELA Cases for Injured Railroad Workers

If you work in the railroad industry, you know just how dangerous this job can be. It is for this reason that the United States Congress enacted the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) in 1908—which specifically protects the rights of railroad workers who are injured on the job. Unlike workers’ compensation, this law allows employees to sue their employers for work-related injuries if negligence was a factor in the accident.

If you are interested in filing a FELA claim against your employer, you should secure the representation of a Los Angeles railroad accident lawyer from Biren Law Group. We have the experience you need to build a successful case. In addition to handling FELA claims on behalf of injured railroad workers, we have also represented cases for people who were injured while riding the train. Call now to find out how we can assist you.

Your Rights as an Injured Worker

Unlike workers’ compensation, the Federal Employers’ Liability Act allows you to recover all of the damages traditionally associated with a lawsuit. In order to do so, however, you must be able to establish that your employer acted negligently—whether they failed to enforce their own safety rules or they created dangerous conditions that put you at risk.

In a FELA claim, you can seek damages for losses that include:

  • Loss of wages and benefits
  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering / mental anguish
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Wrongful death (family members)

Your Rights as an Injured Passenger

If you were injured as the passenger of a train, you may also be entitled to financial compensation. Whether the train crashed or you were injured by dangerous conditions on the train, you may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit against the owner or operator of the train or transit system. These cases are often complex, which is why you should move quickly to discuss your case with an attorney at Biren Law Group.

Train Accident Case Victories

Biren Law Group has recovered damages for numerous train accident victims, including injured workers and injured passengers.

Some of our most notable cases include:

  • Doe Families v. Roe Railroad: the families of two maintenance workers were paid substantial wrongful death damages. We proved that the primary cause of the accident was the employer's failure to enforce its own safety rules.
  • Curtis v. Metrolink: an elderly lady riding the train was paid $500,000 for a serious leg injury she sustained when the train lurched. We proved that the train was unsafe because there was no stanchion for her to hold onto as she stood.
