The railroad industry is an essential aspect of our nation's history and economic success. The vast majority of the time, railroad owners keep the machinery in safe working order and the trains travel without incident.
When train wrecks do occur, however, the results are generally disastrous. Because of the speed and size of trains, victims of train accidents almost always suffer catastrophic injuries or wrongful death.
At Bowles & Verna LLP in California, we have 25 years of experience representing clients who have been injured or lost family members in train accidents. Our train accident lawyers are dedicated professionals with a track record of successfully obtaining compensation for train accident victims.
Unlimited Recovery Under FELA
FELA, the Federal Employees Liability Act, is a body of federal legislation intended to protect railroad workers. It mandates that railroad companies keep their railroads, trains and equipment in clean functional order and provide railroad employees with the tools and training they need to do their jobs free of unnecessary danger.
Railroad companies are generally liable for all of the damages that result from any accidents caused by their failure to comply with the mandates of the Federal Employees Liability Act (FELA). FELA claims are complicated cases, and the railroad companies and their insurance agents defend against these cases fiercely. We have dealt with many FELA cases. We have the experience and skill to help you.
Under FELA, there is no limit on recovery for damages caused by a railroad company's negligence.
