How is a FELA claim better than workers’ compensation?
Attorney John Cooper has been helping injured railroad workers and the families of those who have lost a loved one on the railroad to make a recovery for decades. FELA is only available to railroad workers and gives them better rights than they would have under workers’ compensation, but it is not a no-fault system like workers’ compensation. Railroad workers don’t qualify for workers’ compensation. FELA allows railroad workers to receive fuller damages as opposed to medical bills and some lost wages. They can receive all lost wages, future lost wages, permanent injury damage and damages for pain and suffering. Read more about the differences between the two systems of compensation here.
