Serious Knee Injury and Repetitive Stress for Railroad Workers
Knee injuries are not uncommon for railroad workers, especially those who have spent decades working on the track or as switchmen. In addition to repetitive stress injuries, workers also can be victims of slip-and-fall injuries. Climbing over tracks and through cars can present their own dangerous circumstances resulting in knee injuries. At Cahill & Perry, P.C., we have more than 40 years of experience in helping victims and their families collect the financial support they need after a knee injury.
Medical Documentation and Investigations
The knee joint is very sensitive and can be severely damaged after trauma. Any twists or missteps can damage ligaments and tendons. These injuries can be sudden, or occur over time. Victims may be able to recover, but also can be permanently impaired because of a knee injury. Employees are able to sue due to exposure to unsafe conditions and can seek compensation if they are unable to return to work.
We are a dedicated railroad worker victims’ rights firm with extensive experience handling both FELA (Federal Employers Liability Act) and FRSA (Federal Railway Safety Act) claims and investigations. Our railroad knee injury attorneys represent clients throughout New York, Connecticut, Boston, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and nationally, in cases involving:
- Permanent or partial injuries
- Torn ligaments and tendons
- Dangerous working conditions
- FELA injury
Helping You Toward Rehabilitation and Recovery
Future functionality and the ability to work always will come into question in these cases. It is important to work with an experienced FELA lawyer who can investigate your case, collect relevant documentation, and effectively present your case. We can help you seek appropriate resources for rehabilitation when necessary, but remember not to sign any documentation or settle without first consulting an attorney who can protect your rights.
