More Than 50 Years of FELA Experience
Railroad employees are not covered by state workers’ compensation laws. Instead, they can recover compensation under the Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA).
Rossi Vucinovich PC has been helping railroad employees and their families recover under FELA for over 50 years.
At Rossi Vucinovich PC, our attorneys are experienced in the unique rules and procedures involved in FELA claims. We have the ideal railroad injury lawyer to thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your injuries to identify:
- Safety violations,
- Reckless behavior, and
- Other indications of negligence.
We then build strong claims that maximize your recovery.
Railroads are large organizations with powerful interests at their back. When taking on these companies, you need someone just as powerful in your corner.
