Austin Railroad Worker Accident Lawyer
Smith County and Travis County FELA Attorneys
Railroad workers play a vital role in our economy while facing very high levels of physical risk. The U.S. government recognized the need for specific legal protection of railroad workers nearly a century ago with the passing of the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA).
If you have been seriously injured at work on your railroad job in Texas — or a family member has been tragically killed — it is essential to consult a lawyer with successful FELA claims experience. At Colley & Colley, L.L.P., both our attorneys have this experience, along with the professional resources and reputation to build the best case possible for you.
Fighting for Injured Railroad Workers in Central and East Texas
As you may know, it is necessary to prove employer negligence to succeed with a FELA claim. Causes of train and railroad yard accidents can be challenging to determine and prove, and our firm is up to this challenge. Our focus will be on:
- Thorough investigation of the railroad accident that has changed your life, with involvement from accident reconstruction experts and industry experts as needed
- Careful monetary valuation of your FELA claim or any other legal claims based on the total impact of your injuries and your future needs
- An honest, informed guidance on your likelihood of success pursuing a FELA claim against your employer or lawsuit against another party liable for your injuries
