Railroad Accidents & FELA Claims in Louisville

Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Have you or someone you care about been injured as a result of a railroad accident? As a railroad worker, you are protected by a special act which was put in place to protect railroad workers for injuries not covered under standard workers' compensation. This act is known as FELA (Federal Employees Liability Act) and it allows for settlements including pain and suffering.

Our Louisville personal injury attorneys from Bahe Cook Cantley & Nefzger PLC are very knowledgeable about FELA and have helped many injured railroad workers seek compensation for their injuries.

Although working on the railroad is considered a high-risk job, this does not mean that you are on your own if you are injured. As with any other profession, there are steps which should be taken to protect you on the job and when there is a failure to do so, justice must be served.
