Philadelphia Railroad Injuries


At Cahill & Perry, P.C., a railroad accident law firm in Philadelphia, our lawyers are experienced in railroad accident claims and FELA litigation. FELA, the Federal Employers’ Liability Act, is a federal legislative measure designed to ensure injured railroad employees receive their full benefits and compensation. If you have been injured in a railroad accident, FELA lawyers in Philadelphia can help you make sure you receive all that you are entitled under the federal act.

Steps to Take After a Railyard Injury

  • The first step following a railroad accident is to seek medical attention. Keep track of all your medical expenses – including hospitalization bills, prescription expenses, and loss of wages due to physical inability or physical therapy. FELA also covers occupational illnesses that could stem from exposure to chemicals or other harmful railyard conditions.
  • Take down the information of any witnesses to your accident. Their testimony could be valuable when you and your lawyers are proving the accident was due to negligence on your employer’s part.
  • Find an experienced railroad attorney in Philadelphia. The railroad company employs expert claims agents and investigators who will try to prove the accident was your fault in order to limit your employer’s liability. A lawyer well versed in the FELA process can help keep your rightful compensation safe.
  • Do not procrastinate on securing legal representation and starting the FELA claims process. Like most other litigation, railroad injury claims are subject to deadlines and statutes of limitations. Let our lawyers guide you quickly and efficiently through the process of a Philadelphia FELA lawsuit.
