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.
