Chicago FELA Litigation Lawyers | Romanucci & Blandin
The Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) was enacted in 1908 by Congress to provide benefits for railroad workers injured during the course of their employment.
FELA claims today are similar to Workers’ Compensation claims in that they are based on negligence but different because they are uncapped. The Act covers past and future physical and mental suffering, disability, medical expenses, and lost earnings for injured railroad workers, as well as for the families whose loved ones were killed while working on the railroad.
It has been estimated that 30% of railroad employees who hire a lawyer for a FELA claim receive 80% of all FELA settlement money. This startling statistic highlights the importance of hiring a skilled attorney with the experience to prepare for a FELA claim and litigation simultaneously.
Over the years, our lawyers have represented numerous clients who have been injured in railroad accidents, and we are recognized for our skill and tenacity in obtaining the maximum compensation possible on FELA claims.
The following is a list of the types of FELA cases we handle for our clients:
- Railroad accidents
- Occupational illnesses
- Exposure to asbestos or other toxic substances on the job
