Railroad/FELA

Railroad/FELA

Union Approved Designated Legal Counsel

Hall & Lampros, LLP is a recognized leader in the representation of railroad employees who have been injured in the course of their employment. Our attorneys are experienced in prosecuting worker’s claims for personal injury and wrongful death under the Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA), which controls employee claims against railroad employers.

In the past few years, Hall & Lampros attorneys have secured numerous multi-millon dollar verdicts in FELA and other railroad cases. Claims under the FELA are different from other types of personal injury law in that the FELA grants specialty protections relating to burden of proof, strict liability, causation, and negligence standards. Your FELA attorney must be familiar with railroad specific terminology and work conditions, railroad claims handling procedures, railroad pension and benefits programs, and specific requirements of the Safety Appliance Act and Boiler Inspection Act.

Dangers to railroad workers are unique – whether in the form of sudden accidents, cummulative trauma, or toxic exposure leading. To ensure that the FELA’s railroad worker specific rights are enforced to the workers greatest advantage, an attorney must have significant training and experience working with the FELA, its statute specific guarantees to railroad workers, and the special dangers and risks associated with long-term railroad employment.
