At Cahill Goetsch & Perry, P.C., railroad accident law firm in New Haven, CT, we have more than 30 years experience in representing victims of railroad accidents or railyard occupational injury. Our lawyers have a successful history of filing FELA claims and winning you the CT FELA award you deserve for your railroad injury.
FELA Awards for Railyard Injuries
FELA, or the Federal Employers' Liability Act, is designed by Congress to guarantee railroad workers compensation for their work-related injuries. By shifting the liability for work injuries to the employer, the legislation also encourages employers to make their railyards as safe as possible to prevent injuries.
However, the FELA itself does not guarantee you compensation for an injury unless you know how to guide your claim through the system and prove negligence on the part of your employer. If you have been in an accident or suffer from occupational health hazards, the first step in filing a FELA claim is to contact railroad lawyers experienced with the process. The attorneys at our law firm know how to get you the compensation you deserve for your physical suffering and medical expenses, and can help you avoid making mistakes that could later cost you your rightful settlement.
Our law firm has offices conveniently located in New Haven, CT, Boston, MA, and New York, NY. We have represented workers for NJ Transit, Metro-North, and Amtrak among others. The physical recovery alone for a railyard accident can be overwhelming; let our lawyers help you get the financial compensation you deserve. Don’t let lack of legal aid come between you and your entitled FELA award.
