Railroad

Railroad employees work in an industry that is considered among the most dangerous in the country, and there are a number of ways railroad employees can be injured on the job. In response to the thousands of railroad injuries and workers deaths and work-related injuries in the late 1800s and early 1900s, Congress passed special federal legislation in an attempt to make the industry less hazardous.

The Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA), the Federal Safety Appliance Act and the Boiler Inspection Act provide liberal remedies to compensate injured railroad employees. These laws provide for damages, including past and future medical care, past and future wage loss, disability and disfigurement, and pain and suffering. Despite passage of these acts, there are still thousands of railroad workers injured in the United States each year, often because of railroad employer negligence.

Railroad employees also fall victim to regular, unprotected exposure to asbestos, chemicals, PCBs, diesel fumes, rail dust and dust particulates, cleaning agents, and various other harmful contaminates that often results in a variety of pulmonary conditions and illnesses.
