Tremendous railroad expansion coupled with intensified risks for railroad workers culminated in Congress passing the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA). Unlike workers’ compensation, FELA allows railroad employees and their families to sue employers for negligence causing work injuries and death.
Because railroads are an interstate transportation industry and FELA is a federal law, courts hear cases at both the federal and state levels. The New York FELA attorneys at Hach & Rose, LLP, effectively pursue FELA cases on behalf of our clients in New York and nationwide.
