Railroad Labor and It's History

As reported in the 1915 edition of the "Railway Statistics of the United States," 2,565 railway employees were killed in 1914. That's a 17% decrease from year 1913! Since records were kept, the peak year for employee deaths was in 1907 when 4,353 were killed! Please remember our FELA Counsel listed below. Feel free to call anyone of them listed or visit the fine web sites by clicking on the names.
FELA COUNSEL
The Federal Employers Liability Act was passed by Congress in 1908, for the purpose of providing compensation to railroad employees who are injured on the job. It enables injured employees to bring claims directly against their employers where it can be shown that it was the railroad's negligence that caused the injury.  The FELA is a specialized area of the law.  The BLET has recommended members of the Academy of Rail Labor Attorneys (ARLA) to whom members can go for guidance, advice, and representation.  They are all experienced in handling FELA claims.  Many FELA counsel are based in one state, yet practice FELA law in many states.  Remember, all advice is free.  When in doubt, call your Local Chairman or any of these Counsel listed below.
