Railroad-Related Mesothelioma? Come To Sieben Polk P.A.

Inherent dangers of the railroad industry place the workers in this field at great risk for personal injury or wrongful death. Similar to the dangers posed by the construction and manufacturing fields, railroad workers endure some of the most hazardous conditions in the country.

Not all law offices are equipped with the knowledge and resources needed to handle these high profile cases; this is precisely why you will need the help of our expert railroad trial lawyers. For more than 30 years, the FELA attorneys at Sieben Polk have had the privilege representing injured railroad workers from every major union and craft. We won’t back down until justice is found for workers injured or killed in these tragic accidents.

FELA is different from other laws, such as state worker’s compensation laws. Under FELA, injured railroad workers may be eligible for compensation beyond what a typical Workers’ Compensation claim may pay out.  Every case is different and should be evaluated by an experienced FELA attorney to determine if a victim has a claim. Our professional FELA railroad injury lawyers can help you with this aspect of your case. If your employer is found to be responsible for your injury, you or your family may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Lost Wages
  • Loss of Benefits
  • Disability Pay
  • Scarring
  • Emotional Pain and Suffering
  • Medical Expenses
  • Funeral Costs
  • Loss of Quality of Life

The compensation provided to injured workers by Workers’ Compensation is all too often not enough to meet the needs of a victim and their families. To recover under FELA, however, it is necessary to first establish some negligence on the part of the railroad. This differs from state workers’ compensation laws where no such proof is needed.  This is why is it critical to contact a FELA attorney to review your claim. Contact our law office today to discuss the specifics of your case.

Sieben Polk has a veteran team of trial attorneys with the skills needed to fight large entities, such as railroads. Our top trial attorneys give every client specialized legal advice tailored to the specific facts of their injury and will not stop fighting until justice is served for that client.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one due to the negligence of another person in a railroad accident, contact our seasoned injury lawyers today. Together we can seek a financial compensation figure that meets your needs as a victim and can continue to provide for your, long after this ordeal is over.

When selecting clients to represent in court, our firm operates on a contingency fee basis. What this means to our clients is simple: if we don’t win your case, you won’t pay anything.  We choose to operate this way for the sole benefit of our clients; we want to see you obtain a successful recovery so that you can continue to carry on with your life.
