Railroad worker injuries: What type of support is available?

It is no secret that working on a Connecticut railroad is dangerous. In fact, railroad workers throughout the nation are doubly at risk for fatal injury compared to other workers. When fatalities occur because of employer negligence, family members of decedents may seek financial recovery for their losses in court. Not all railroad worker injuries are fatal, however, so it is equally important that workers who survive their injuries understand where to seek support and how to claim benefits to help them during recovery.

Railroad accidents not always reported as they should be

There are thousands of miles of railroad tracks running through Connecticut and many other states. Most of these tracks carry freight and passenger trains, while some run commuter locomotives that travel back and forth between close-distance areas. When railroad accidents occur, injured workers are entitled to benefits to help cover their medical expenses and other costs associated with their injuries.
