Railroad Worker Accidents
Railroad Worker Accidents and Injury Claims
The Federal Employee Liability Act is a United States law that offers protection for railroaders who have been injured on the job. Our Chicago railroad injury lawyers undertake many complicated cases per year. If faulty machinery or the inattentiveness of fellow workers or foremen has directly resulted in an injury or chronic condition, the personal injury lawyers at the Law Office of Steven J. Malman and Associates can help. We know how to get the maximum amount to pay for any physical therapy, lost salaries, discomfort and suffering, and even psychological counseling.
Railroad Workers Accidents Can Be Quick or Gradual
Probably the most well-known and well-documented railroad worker accident was that of Phineas Gage. In the 19th century, Gage was injured by a tamping iron that completely pierced his skull, but astonishingly, did not kill him. However, the spike damaged the frontal lobes of his brain, creating drastic personality and behavioral changes.
Despite this reference, not all Chicago railroad injuries happen quickly and result in severe damage. Many railroad injuries happen gradually over the course of many years. These can include:
- Damage to ligament and soft tissue
- Poisoning or breathing difficulty from industrial chemicals and solvents
- Back strain or tension-related injuries
These are just some of the examples of injuries and conditions that can have devastating effects on the even the strongest workers, leading substantial medical expenses, chronic pain, and ultimately, even death.
