Railroad Injury (FELA)

Railroad Injury Lawyers in Montana

We Help Montana and OregonClients Protect Their Rights Under the Federal Employee Liability Act

On-the-job injuries in Montana and Oregonare generally subject to the Montana and Oregonworkers’ compensation laws. However, railroad employees are provided additional protection under the Federal Employee Liability Act (FELA). If an on-the-job injury is not covered by workers’ compensation, there may be other legal methods to recover compensation. In the area of workers’ compensation, the legislature enacts numerous changes every session. The compensation laws which apply depend upon when injury occurred and whether the injury relates to a previous injury. 

The Montana Workers’ Compensation Laws provide benefits to employees who have been injured on the job as a result of an accident. Unfortunately for injured workers, the benefits under the workers’ compensation law are somewhat limited and highly regulated.

What to do if you are injured on the job:

  • Report all on the job injuries to your employer immediately.
  • If you are injured and need medical attention, file a claim with your employer’s workers’ compensation carrier.
  • Keep copies of all documents you complete and receive regarding your compensation case.
