If you work for the railroad and have an injury, there is a special law that protects you. That law is called the FELA (Federal Employers Liability Act). If you have a railroad injury, the FELA allows to recover all of your damages if you were hurt and your injury was the fault of the railroad. But if you have a railroad injury, you only have three years from the date you knew you were hurt by the railroad’s negligence to sue them or settle with them. Paul Bovarnick has more than 30 years of experience successfully representing my clients in cases against Union Pacific Railroad, Burlington Northern Santa Fe, Montana Rail Link, Amtrak, Portland and Western, Central Oregon and Pacific and the Portland Terminal Railroads in Washington, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Wyoming and North Dakota.

Paul is an excellent attorney and it is obvious he loves what he does. He is very knowledgeable of the process of personal injury litigation. He was caring and compassionate during the entire time he represented me. He always took the time to listen and communicated promptly when I needed to talk to him. Paul and his staff are very professional and helped to make a difficult and stressful process easier. I was very impressed with how he interacted with the opposing attorneys. At the beginning of my case Paul (and staff) were strangers but by the time my case ended I felt as if I had gained new friends. I would highly recommend Paul to anyone!
AlRailroad Injury Client, Back Injury
I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers. Paul and his staff did an excellent job of representing me. He always kept me alerted on what to expect throughout my case’s progress, kept me informed of progress on my case, consulted with me whenever legal or financial decisions were made, and was generally informative about my case and its progress. Paul never gave me unrealistic expectations concerning the potential outcome of my case. His experience in dealing with a large corporation’s legal department was invaluable. I would like to say that my association with Paul Bavarnick was very rewarding. I’d hire him again in a minute!

I absolutely recommend Paul Bovarnick
When I called Paul, he promptly returned my call, set up a time to meet, traveled to me, arrived near the location of my injury, visited with me, then we went to the location where he asked the property managers questions related to my case, and took photographs. He told me up front the obstacles, procedures and the approximate value of the case. In the end it settled slightly higher than what he stated up front, and that was due to his extra vigilance on a negotiation with my health care provider, who was not directly related to the aim of the suit. You will develop a freindship along the way with Paul and his staff, because of his and their deep integrity, involvment and understanding of your case. I consider Paul a friend and a superb attorney, including his staff. I do and have recommended Paul to others and will continue to.
I recommend Paul Bovarnick.
My experience with Paul was excellent. From start to finish, I was always informed on what was happening with my case. He understands how to communicate effectively with both his client and other attorneys. He is up front and trustworthy. He and his hard working staff are very personable and professional. I highly recommend Paul if you need a an attorney.
