Train Accident Questions and Answers

Our Q & A is a helpful resource for anyone who has suffered a train accident injury or wants to learn more about the legal process surrounding these types of injuries. Below you’ll find valuable information on a range of topics, from insurance claims to personal injury lawsuits.

The best thing you can do to improve your train accident case and raise the chance of receiving compensation is carefully documenting your case.

This means you should keep copies of all documents that share details of your injuries or the case’s details including:

  • Police reports
  • Any communication with an insurance company
  • Medical records
  • Witness statements
  • Any personally written details that you remember from the accident
In 1908, the United States Congress passed the Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA). This law was enacted due to the high number of railroad workers who were killed on the job around the turn of the century.

Because of FELA, railroad employees can sue their employer for their injuries (unlike Texas employees subject to workers’ compensation laws). Railroad employees, in order to receive compensation, must prove that they were injured because of the negligence of another employee, their employer, or due to faulty equipment.

Railroad worker injury claims aren’t limited to physical injuries, but also can include injuries resulting from exposure to asbestos, silica, creosote, and other harmful chemicals.

In Texas, railroad employees have the option to sue their employers under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA).
Railroad accidents are often accompanied by serious and expensive injuries, and many parties could be held liable.

With a complicated situation and high stakes at hand, you’ll want to make sure you work with an attorney who truly understands the local and federal regulations that can surround railroad accident cases.
