Railroad Law

Pittsburgh Lawyers for Railroad Work Accident Victims

Don’t Trust a Workers’ Comp Lawyer with the Complex Facets of Railroad Law—Speak to Our Experienced Team Instead.

Railroad workers were the first in the country to be guaranteed recompense for on-the-job accidents. Before a general workers’ compensation law was passed in America, the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) was created in recognition of the high number of severe injuries railroad workers could acquire due to an employer’s negligence. Railroads do not have a financial interest in informing workers of the full range of benefits and options that may be available under the act. They do not want you to know that, even if you are receiving limited occupational disability benefits after an accident, you may be eligible for additional payments or Railroad Retirement Board benefits.

At Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., we have worked with railroad employees across the state, along the Eastern Seaboard, and throughout the nation. For decades, we have made helping injured workers a priority, and our Pittsburgh railroad lawyers can bring knowledge, experience and a commitment to success to your side.

Know Your Rights Under Railroad Law

If you don't take the initiative to pursue and protect your rights, you may not receive the full benefits to which you are entitled. An employer is unlikely to start a process that can cost them money and could cause scrutiny of their operations. It will be up to you to file a claim for compensation and follow up as much as needed.

However, we understand this can be a taxing process, especially if you are badly injured. Our lawyers can educate, advise, and represent you against your employer and their insurer. With our help, you may be able to receive larger disability benefits and more resources for yourself and your family. Our office works with railroad workers who have suffered a range of illnesses and injuries as well as the families of wrongful death victims in cases involving:

We have decades of experience working with railroaders throughout the United States. We know how to pursue claims under FELA, and we are proud to have established a proven record of success and service with previous clients.

Consult with a Pittsburgh Railroad Law Attorney

Timely action can be a vital component in workplace injury cases, and if you wait too long to talk with an attorney, you may lose some of the rights and options available to you. We can help you determine if you are eligible to file a claim—even if you’re all the way across the country.
