  • BMWED Designated FELA Firms

    FELA 

    The Federal Employers Liability Act, also known as FELA, is a federal law enacted in 1908, that protects and compensates railroad workers – including BMWED members – that are injured on the job. FELA is essentially the form of Workers’ Compensation in the railroad industry. If an injured railroad employee can establish that the railroad employer was at least partially negligent in causing the injury, whether it be through unsafe work conditions, a faulty piece of equipment or machinery, etc., the injured employee is entitled to compensation. FELA covers job-related injury, death, and occupational illness and disease.

    All BMWED designated law firms are approved to handle FELA cases for BMWED members and have an established record of successful litigation experience. Additionally, all BMWED designated law firms provide services on a contingency basis that is subject to a reduced fee structure, as approved by the BMWED National Division. Below is a list of law firms approved to handle cases for BMWED members under the FELA.
