Montana Railroad Injury Lawyer - Helping Railroad Workers Seriously Injured On The Job

Railroad employees are skilled workers who place themselves in dangerous situations each and every day. This can lead to serious injuries and illnesses. If you, or a loved one, is a railroad employee that has been seriously injured on the job our team of Montana railroad injury lawyers are here to help you. These types of injuries and illnesses can lead to missed days of work, costly medical expenses, pain, and suffering and in some cases short or long-term disability or death.

Railroad injuries can range from minor to severe. In cases of a derailment or an accident involving a worker being struck by a train, the injuries are almost always immediately apparent and may require extensive medical care. However, there are also instances of illnesses developing over time (cumulative trauma) such as degenerative arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and mesothelioma or asbestosis (asbestos related diseases) that result from prolonged exposure to negligent work assignments.

The Montana railroad injury lawyers at Odegaard Kovacich Snipes, are highly skilled legal advocates who have experience handling a wide variety of workplace accidents, including railroad accidents and mining accidents. We will carefully review your case and determine how to pursue compensation for the injuries you have suffered.

What Is the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA)?

Under the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA), railroad workers who may not be covered by regular workers' compensation laws are able to sue all potentially liable companies over injuries suffered on the job. FELA allows monetary payouts for lost earning capacity and pain and suffering, which can substantially exceed benefits typically available under workers' compensation laws.

FELA is an area of the law that is very specific and addresses injuries to railroad workers. Cumulative trauma injuries, broken bones, asbestos-related illnesses such as mesothelioma, amputations, and even wrongful death can result from railroad-related workplace negligence. Know your rights and trust your case to our lawyers, who will keep your best interests in mind at all times.
