One of the cornerstones of our firm is our success in litigating railroad
cases and fighting for the rights of railroad workers under the Federal
Employees Liability Act (FELA). As a railroad employee, you are engaged
in one of the most dangerous occupations because you are continually
working around railroad cars and heavy, railroad related equipment. There is
a multitude of job related injuries that railroad workers may suffer while
at work on the railroad every day. Railroad trauma, exposure to hazardous
materials and chemicals are only a few of the many areas of legal expertise
Hannon Law Office offers our clients.
Over the years, the railroads have intimidated and harassed employees
for reporting injuries; for seeking medical treatment; trying to reduce
their exposure to dangerous chemicals and substances such as asbestos,
creosote and diesel fumes; reporting serious safety issues and
outright violations of safety laws; refusing to violate a federal law, rule,
or regulation relating to rail safety.
The Federal Railroad Safety Act (FRSA) 49 U.S.C. 20109 prohibits railroads from retaliating against workers who engage in “protected activities” such as those listed above. Adverse action taken by a railroad against a railroad employee for engaging in a protected activity can be a violation of the FRSA, resulting in
reinstatement, payment for economic loss, payment for emotional
distress to the railroad employee and punitive damages imposed on
However, the notice requirements are strict, so if you are an employee
who is covered by the FRSA, you must contact an attorney immediately.
