Louisiana Railroad Injury Attorneys
Work on the railroad has its serious risks and dangers, and our laws reflect that reality. The Federal Employer's Liability Act (FELA), Locomotive Inspection Act, Safety Compliance Act, and other laws hold railroad owners and managers accountable for promoting and maintaining a safe work environment.
Like workers' compensation insurance for employees in other industries, FELA is intended to provide railroad workers and their families fair compensation for work-related injuries or a death on the job. Attorneys at The Provost Umphrey Law Firm have a successful, decades-long history of representing injured railroad workers and seeking maximum compensation under FELA and other applicable laws.
"The Federal Employers' Liability Act was designed to put on the railroad industry some of the costs of the legs, arms, eyes, and lives which it consumed in its operation" - Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas
