West Virginia Railroad FELA Accident Lawyer

Railroad workers injured on the job must recover medical expenses and lost wages under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) as opposed to workers’ compensation.

At DiTrapano Barrett DiPiero McGinley & Simmons, PLLC, our lawyers have the investigative resources needed to expose negligence and OSHA violations on the part of railroad employers. Our personal injury attorneys interview eyewitnesses, managers, and the foreman in charge when accidents occur in the yard or office. Even if your injuries occurred out of state while a train was in transit, we will travel to the scene of an accident, gather data, and help prepare your case for trial.

Don’t assume your human resources department has your interest in mind. We will evaluate your case and provide you with the information you need to recover benefits AND protect your job under the terms of FELA.
