Railroad Accident Attorney in Houston, FELA Lawyer

If you are a Texas resident employed by a railroad company and sustain a work related injury or illness as a result of your employment, you should contact Marc Whitehead & Associates, a railroad accident attorney in Houston. There is a special law, the Federal Employer’s Liability Act, that entitles victims of railroad accidents and illnesses to compensation beyond that ordinarily allowed in worker’s compensation claims.

It is important to contact a FELA lawyer because you will need an attorney to recover the maximum amount for your claim. In all FELA claims, the case will have to be tried to a jury. The attorney will have to convince the jury that the railroad was negligent before the jury can award damages. However, unlike worker’s compensation claims that are paid out on a pre-determined benefits schedule, a FELA award can be any amount the jury wishes to award. The largest amount ever awarded by a jury was $12 million. A FELA lawyer can help you obtain the benefits you need for your work related injury in Texas.

Railroad accidents can cause severe and debilitating injuries such as brain damage, paralysis, and head and spinal injury. Compensation can include medical expenses, ongoing therapy, lost income, pain and suffering, and future income. Families of railroad workers killed while on the job are entitled to collect a number of additional damages. Examples of injuries that result from railroad accidents include, but are not limited to, sprains, fractures, head trauma, brain damage, paralysis, and, in extreme cases, death. Victims of railroad accidents may be entitled to damages for pain and suffering, medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and loss of earning capacity.
