Railroad Cases In Virginia

As a personal injury law firm located in Virgina, we have handled a large variety of cases involving everything from car accidents to skiing accidents. However, over the years, we have had the privilege to handle a large number of cases concerning injured railroad workers. Unlike most on the job injury cases, railroad workers injuries are not subject to the state compensation laws. Instead, railroad employees who are injured at work are covered by the Federal Employer's Liability Act, also known as FELA. FELA is a federal law that applies to railroad workers across the country and which allows a claim to be made directly against the employing railroad. The employee has a choice of filing his claim in either state or federal court and there are other procedural and substantive legal benefits to making a claim under the FELA. Our law firm's extensive experience in handling the claims of injured railroad workers under the FELA translates into success for our clients.
