Railroad Worker (FELA)

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Established Chicago Railroad Workers Attorney

Railroad workers are protected by the Federal Employee Liability Act, and our veteran Illinois personal injury attorneys have handled plenty of cases involving injuries to railroad workers. If you get injured while at work due to the carelessness or negligence of coworkers or foremen, or due to malfunctioning equipment, you are eligible to receive money to pay for lost wages, pain and suffering, rehabilitation, and even psychological therapy.

When people think about injuries involving railroads, they most likely think about the case of Phineas Gage, who was a 19th century railroad worker. After an ill-timed explosion went off, a tamping iron went through Gage’s skull, completely piercing his brain. Amazingly, he wasn’t killed, but the injury altered his personality greatly, turning him from a likeable gentleman to an aggressive, despondent man.

Though some Chicago railroad injuries occur in the blink of an eye and have devastating results, many do not and instead develop over time. Many railroad workers become injured slowly and over the course of years of service. Their injuries may include soft tissue damage, strained backs, ligament damage, and exposure to industrial toxins, solvents, and particulate matter. All of these can knock even the strongest, healthiest person off of their pillar, resulting in debilitating injuries that can cause a stack of medical bills, suffering, and even untimely death.

Thankfully, if you or someone you love needs a railroad accident attorney in Illinois, the dynamic team at Malman Law is here to help. We’ve handled thousands of Illinois personal injury cases and workers’ compensation cases since we started our practice in 1994. Aside from railroad accident cases, we have also provided legal representation for slip and fall cases, dog bites, wrongful death, nursing home abuse and neglect, police brutality, cerebral palsy, medical malpractice, traumatic brain injuries, and construction accidents. Our services are offered on a contingency basis, meaning if we fail to collect a settlement or win a verdict for you, you won’t pay us. This is offered so you can feel confident in our lawyers, as well as to motivate our attorneys to work as hard as they can for you—if we don’t win your case, we don’t get paid.

Contact us today to talk to our compassionate yet aggressive personal injury lawyers. Whether you are trying to settle things with an insurer who has a history of acting in bad faith or you are looking to file a class action suit against your railroad employer, we will fight for your rights.
