When a railroad worker is injured on the job, he or she has the right to file an injury claim under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA), which displaces New Jersey Workers’ Compensation for railway workers on federal railroads that cross state lines. Under terms of the act, the worker is allowed to sue for damages against all parties found liable for negligence or misconduct, which can include his or her employer and equipment manufacturer if the equipment is found to be dangerous or defective.
If you are a railroad worker covered under the FELA and were injured while working on the job in New Jersey, or you reside in New Jersey, talk to a FELA railroad injury attorney at Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow & McElroy, LLP. We are experienced FELA trial attorneys who understand the complexities of filing a successful NJ personal injury lawsuit. Since opening our doors more than 10 years ago, we have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts on behalf of people injured because of negligence by other people or corporate entities.
You may not know whether you have a legitimate claim for damages for your injury until you learn your rights. We will take the time to evaluate the circumstances of your railroad accident and explain your options. We have built our success on integrity. Our NJ work injury lawyers will not accept a FELA case unless we are confident we can help you recover full and fair money damages for your injuries.
