In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, railroad workers were engaged in one of the most dangerous occupations. Yet, employers typically fired workers who suffered job-related injuries, leaving their families destitute. The Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) granted workers crucial rights to recover compensation for their injuries and allowed families to pursue money damages for their loved ones killed on the job. FELA’s benefits are modeled after the workers’ compensation program, but permits the additional recovery of damages for pain and suffering, if applicable to the particular case. This is because workers and their families can actually sue their employers for negligence.
Even with FELA protections, injured workers face a new problem that is rampant in the civil judicial system: constant delays. The typical railroad injury case takes months at best, and often years, to resolve. As you await justice, you could lose your home or car and your credit rating could plummet.
