Injuries to a railroad worker and other claims under the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA) present challenges. A longtime employee pursuing an injury claim without the help of an attorney ignores the complexity of the case and the power of a railroad company and its legal team.
Now in our seventh decade of practice, we continue to build our reputation for professionalism and ethics among hardworking Louisiana and Mississippi railroad employees. We take train accident cases seriously and provide compassionate and detail-driven representation. On behalf of all clients, we fight to even the odds.
While settlement may be the quick option for some attorneys, the attorneys at Gainsburgh, Benjamin, David, Meunier & Warshauer, L.L.C., are skilled litigators willing to pursue justice in area courts, including appeals, if necessary.
Our Experience Makes The Difference
FELA was enacted in 1908 to protect the rights of injured railroad employees. Under the act, the railroad employer is required to maintain safe work conditions in rail yards. Workers are entitled to compensation for damages and injuries that result from negligence.
The firm's reputation for effective handling of federal FELA claims and successful outcomes on behalf of injured workers transcends the borders of the state and encompasses the entire Gulf Coast. Our practice in this complex area of the law brings in clients from outside New Orleans and Louisiana for a higher level of legal advocacy.
