Railroad workers operate in environments that are often highly dangerous. They face many on-the-job hazards. At the height of the railroad industry, in 1908, the United States government passed the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) in order to protect the rights of these workers. Over 100 years later, this law still impacts injured railroad workers nationwide. Our team of personal injury lawyers at Leffler Renfroe offers advocacy for injury victims-including injured workers-in Memphis, Tennessee.

FELA was a federal law passed by the United States Congress in 1908 . FELA set up a system that supplies legal recovery for railroad workers and their loved ones after on-the-job accidents. The goal of FELA is to provide protection for railroad workers.
If a worker is injured, he / she will need to show that the railroad company was at fault in failing to meet one or more of the above standards. The "burden of proof" in a FELA claim is, however, less than that of a typical personal injury claim. Workers can make claims directly to their employers or employing companies, or they may bring lawsuits in federal courts. Almost all injuries are covered by FELA.
