Federal Employers Liability Act
Similar to Workers Compensation, the Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA) provides compensation for railroad workers injured on the job. Almost any worker employed by a railroad company, even those whose work is not specifically in or around trains, is protected under the FELA. If you feel as though you have been injured as a result of the railroad or any other related injury while on the job, then you certainly qualify for our legal funding. It doesn’t matter whether the railroad was in poor condition or if weather conditions made the track slick, icy or dangerous. While you are fully entitled to compensation, the responsible party may still try to settle for less. In some cases you might feel as though a reduced settlement is your only option, but with Bridgeview’s help, you can keep fighting your legal battle in an attempt to get more from your case. Regardless of what you need the money for, we are here to help and we accept the majority of FELA cases.
