Anderson, Moschetti & Taffany

Lawyers For Injured Railroad Workers

In 1908, Congress passed the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) which entitles railroad workers not covered by regular worker’s compensation to seek compensation from their employer if they were injured on the job. The law offices of Anderson, Moschetti and Taffany has over eight decades of combined experience, and can obtain the compensation you deserve if you were injured in a railroad workplace accident.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) sets strict guidelines for persons working on railroads. There are additional standards set in place by other Acts, such as the Boiler Inspection Act and the Safety Appliance Act, creating a framework of rights and responsibilities that your employer is required to follow.

Some Requirements Include:

  • provide work and workplace free from recognized hazards
  • provide employees, former employees and their representatives access to the Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses
  • establish or update operating procedures and communicate them so that employees follow safety and health requirements
  • report to the nearest OSHA office within eight hours of any fatal accident or one that results in hospitalization of three or more employees
