“Mr. Vucinovich was a great man. I would use him again. He kept my wife and I informed and also was a great help keeping the railroad off my back for less stress. If I had a problem he would take care of it for me or find someone who could. Thank you.”
More Than 50 Years Of FELA Experience
Railroads are large organizations with powerful interests at their back. When taking on these companies, you need someone just as powerful in your corner.
Rossi Vucinovich PC has been helping railroad employees and their families recover under FELA for over 50 years. Our railroad accident lawyers have seen the effects railroad injuries have on our clients and their families. We are dedicated to helping injured railroad workers obtain the benefits they need to treat their injuries, pay their bills and continue supporting their families.
Get Your Life Back On Track
Railroad employees are not covered by state workers’ compensation laws. Instead, they can recover compensation under FELA. Families of workers who were killed are also entitled to compensation. However, injured workers must prove that the railroad was at least partially negligent in causing their injuries.
