The Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA)
The Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) is a U.S. federal law designed to protect and compensate railroad workers who are injured on the job. FELA claims are similar to workers compensation claims, however, they differ in that the injured employee must show that the employer (or railroad) at least partly caused the injury. Because it can be difficult to prove that the railroad played a role in an injury, legal cases around railroad accidents can take some time.
When we talk about FELA cases, we mean everything from improperly functioning railroads to dangerous conditions on the tracks, injuries caused by repetitive motions and other occupation-related injuries such as hearing loss. If you are a railroad worker and are a victim of any of the above (or any other work related incident), we can provide the funding you need to remain financially stable while you work through your lawsuit.
All of our lawsuit funding is risk-free, which means that if you don’t win your case, you don’t pay!
We also do not expect you to do any of the leg work when it comes to getting documents from your attorney and other information related to your case. Our funding specialists will contact your attorney on your behalf so that you can focus on recovering, and once approved, you can use the funding however you need to.
