Illinois Labor Union Lawyers Representing the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen (BRS).

FSLA Coverage for Injured Railroad Workers

Historically, railroad work is one of the more dangerous jobs you can have in Illinois. There are so many ways that railroad workers can become injured, including falls, burns, electrical accidents, and train crashes. A railroad worker’s financial security and livelihood could be severely affected should they become injured.

Under both federal and state laws, employers are required to pay for any injury their employees incur while at work. Railroad workers who are injured at work or those in a similar profession receive coverage under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) or by the Illinois

Workers’ Compensation Act.

Even though there are benefits available to railroad workers who have been injured, there are many challenges in the process of obtaining them. Workers’ compensation and FELA claims require very specific steps in filing, and without the right law firm to provide assistance, mistakes can be made which could jeopardize your compensation.

As one of the biggest workers’ compensation and personal injury firm in Illinois, the RB Law firm of Chicago has handled numerous workplace injury claims for a variety of Illinois union workers.

Workers’ Compensation Litigation Leaders

About 10,000 members are a part of the Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen, which is an AFL-CIO-affiliated union with members in the U.S. and Canada. There are members within the BRS who install, manage and operate signal systems for railroads throughout the country.

The majority of the major railroads throughout the country has agreements with BRS, which include:

  • Amtrak
  • BNSF
  • P&W
  • Gateway Western Railway Co.
  • KCS
  • MidSouth Rail Corp.
  • National
  • PanAm Railways
  • St. Lawrence & Atlantic
  • Union Pacific
  • W&LE
  • Conrail
  • CSXT
  • Norfolk Southern
  • NYS&W

Railroads operate throughout the entire day, which means signalmen work during all hours and in every type of weather. There are a variety of workplace hazards that signalmen, train engineers and operators face. If injured, signalmen need to seek the expert advice of a workers’ compensation and FELA law firm to ensure entitlement to their benefits.
