FAQs about Railway Employee Rights

What is FELA?

The Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA) is a United States federal law that protects and compensates railroad workers who are injured on the job or in job-related activities. FELA covers a wide range of injury types, including serious injuries on the railway and during transport, exposures to toxic elements, RSIs (Repetitive Strain Injuries caused by repetitious movements) and more.

What is a FELA claim?

Unlike workers’ compensation claims processed through an insurance company, FELA lawsuits are directly filed in state or federal court. This process often involves the expertise of a dedicated FELA lawyer for adequate representation.

Do I need a lawyer to represent my FELA case?

The necessity of legal representation hinges on the severity and complexity of your case. At Roven Camp, we offer complimentary consultations to assist railroad workers in determining whether legal representation is needed for their FELA case.

If I go on disability, can I still have a FELA case?

Yes. Being on RRB disability, whether temporary or permanent, doesn't bar you from filing a lawsuit. Successful recovery may require reimbursement of some or all RRB disability benefits. Supplemental sickness benefits may also be reimbursed.

Do I have a case if I’m injured during work-related travel?

Yes. According to the Supreme Court's FELA interpretation, a railroad must ensure a safe workplace, extending to off-site locations, including private hotels. If safety standards aren't met, the railroad is still liable for negligence under FELA.

Do railroad workers get workers’ compensation?

Railroad employees engaged in interstate commerce are exempt from state workers' compensation laws. Instead, the Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA) provides comprehensive coverage for job-related injuries, often surpassing workers’ compensation.
