Sommers Schwartz is proud to have been named Designated Attorneys for the Transportation Communications Union/IAM (TCU).
Railroad Worker Injury
FELA & FRSA Lawyers
Unlike other workers, railroaders who suffer job-related injuries or employment issues are protected by specific laws known as the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) and the Federal Rail Safety Act (FRSA).
On-The-Job Railroader Injuries
Railroad workers face dangerous situations every day, and long-term exposure to chemicals and the progression of chronic medical conditions are real risks. When injured railroaders are injured or killed on the job, we help them recover the compensation they deserve.
Railroader Employment Issues
When safety concerns put passengers, the public, and others at risk, railroaders are in the best position to spot the danger and report it. Unfortunately, railroad companies sometimes retaliate or discriminate against rail workers for raising safety concerns, jeopardizing their jobs and income.
Meet the Attorneys
who fight for the rights of railroad workers and their families.
If you’re a railroad worker with job-related injuries or employment issues, you need a railroad work injury lawyer skilled and experienced in the specific laws that protect you.
As a railroader, many of your rights are governed by laws that don’t apply to other people. And when your rights are violated, you don’t want just any injury lawyer to represent you – you need an attorney devoted to handling railroader lawsuits.
Backed by a team of nurses, paralegals, and experts, the FELA and FRSA lawyers at Sommers Schwartz have decades of experience in the courtroom and the negotiating table, with an impressive track record of verdicts and settlements for railroader clients. When your health or your livelihood is on the line, we are the first and only phone call you need to make.
“Arvin Pearlman was the first and only attorney that we consulted and could not be happier that we chose him to represent us. I truly realized that Arvin had me and my family’s best interest at heart. Once we made it to trial, all we kept thinking was how glad we were that he was on our side.”
