Understanding Different Laws Related to the Railroad Industry

Railroad employees work in what is considered to be one of the most dangerous industries. There are many ways railroad employees can be injured. Additionally, trains and railroads can be extremely dangerous to pedestrians and motor vehicle passengers. To protect railway workers against the hazards of their jobs, the United States government enacted the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) at the beginning of the 20th century. In addition, the Federal Safety Appliance Act and the Boiler Inspection Act protect railway workers.

These different laws provide that victims of train accidents be compensated for damages such as:

  • Past and future medical care
  • Lost wages
  • Disability and disfigurement
  • Pain and suffering
  • Bodily injury

Injuries and death to pedestrians and operators of motor vehicles is usually governed by state law. Many times these areas of law overlap. To ensure your rights are protected after a collision, derailment, or any other type of train accident, align yourself with a local attorney.
