Were You Injured While Doing Your Railroad Job?
Chicago Lawyers for Injured Railroad Workers
Since 1908, the Federal Employers Liability Act has protected the rights of railroad workers who sustain injuries while at work. FELA even offers financial compensation for injured railroad workers who work in office jobs far from the train tracks.

The attorneys of Lane & Lane in Chicago, Illinois, help injured railroad workers collect compensation for their on-the-job injuries.
We represent clients in FELA claims for:
- Past and future wage loss
- Past and future medical treatment
- Past and future pain, suffering and mental distress
FELA injured workers claims differ from no-fault workers' compensation programs in that the injured railroad worker must prove that the defendant was at fault. However, the burden of proof in a FELA lawsuit is very light. If the defendant (generally the employer, a co-worker or an equipment manufacturer) contributed in any way to the employee's injury, the injured worker can collect damages.
