Many of the jobs in the railroad industry are dangerous. Serious personal injury is not uncommon and the types of injuries are from head, back, and neck injuries to damaged knees and shoulders. If you have suffered serious personal injury in an accident while working as a railroad employee, you need experienced legal advise to protect your rights.
Many railroad employees are injured in slips, trips and falls on the crushed gravel or other ballast that forms the railroad bed.
The injuries that railroad workers suffer come in many forms, from hearing loss due to exposure to high decibel levels to carpal tunnel syndrome to neurological disorders from exposure to toxic solvents and chemicals.
The most common injuries, however, are back injuries, which often result from job requirements that involve excessive lifting. Injuries can be caused by unsafe working conditions, by defective tools, or by faulty equipment. If the injury can be attributed to negligence by the railroad, the worker has a right to recover damages under FELA. Our clients receive our full attention and a high level of customer service.
