Who Is Responsible For My Injuries After a Train Crash?
Every day in the United States, trains travel over 1.5 million miles and

Railway Worker Injuries & FELA – Know Your Rights!
The Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA) was passed by the United
States Congress in 1908 to protect train employees from suffering the
consequences of a
workplace injury caused by someone else's
negligence. In fact, FELA estimates that nearly 40% of all railways accidents are
the result of human error. Today, FELA continues to protect railroad employees
from paying for medical expenses associated with on-the-job injuries.
FELA can also cover these expenses:
- Wage loss (future and past)
- Lost earning potential
- Mental suffering
- Physical pain
- Partial disabilities
- Permanent disabilities
- Scarring / disfigurement
However, it is important to remember that anyone suffering an injury on
a train can be entitled to compensation, not just those individuals employed
by the railways! Duncan Law Group has recovered tens of thousands of dollars
in personal injury claims and lawsuits. Today, the firm is ready to help
clients like you recover the compensation that they need after a serious
