Experienced FELA Attorneys In Louisville
Railroad workers face numerous job hazards on a daily basis. To give them a means of more easily obtaining compensation for their injuries, the federal government created the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA), which protects the rights of railroad workers throughout the nation.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a railroad accident, the attorneys at Satterley & Kelley PLLC can draw upon our extensive knowledge and decades of experience in FELA law to help you obtain the compensation you deserve. We are compassionate advocates for injured railroad workers in Louisville and throughout Kentucky.
The Dangers Of Railroad Work
Under FELA statutes, railroad companies are required to make work conditions and premises safe for their employees. Unfortunately, lapses in safety protocols still lead to serious accidents and even wrongful death.
Some of the most common types of railroad injuries include:
- Grade crossing accidents
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Fires and electrical accidents
- Truck and heavy equipment accidents
We represent engineers, brakemen, conductors and anyone whose job requires them to work on railroad equipment and premises. We also represent family members who have lost loved ones in fatal railroad accidents.
