Wear Out/Cumulative Trauma

Railroad Workers with Wear Out/Cumulative Trauma

Pittsburgh Railroad Lawyers Recovering Compensation for Injured & Disabled Railroaders

Not all injuries that railroad workers suffer on the job are the result of a sudden and immediate trauma. Over time, the damage caused by minor injuries or repetitive stress can build to create a cumulative or degenerative condition. As a result, even people who have not suffered one single major incident might become seriously disabled. They need clear guidance to protect their rights.

At the law office of Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C., our Pittsburgh railroad lawyers have helped hundreds of clients across the nation get full access to their rights, benefits, and compensation. We are proud to offer proven guidance based on decades of successful practice.

A Law Firm that Can Help

What used to be a minor joint issue or a nagging pain in your back, knee or hip, can, over time, become something much more serious. Railroad work often demands a substantial physical toll and can put tremendous stresses on bodies, bones, and joints leading to painful disability.

Our firm and attorneys can explore a full range of options based on decades of experience handling railroad injury law, including cases of:

  • Chronic joint pain
  • Back injury / neck injury
  • Long-term chemical exposure effects
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Permanent or partial disability

When you or a loved one has diminished physical capacity because of any workplace injury, your family has access to avenues for financial recovery. Working with an experienced and reliable attorney that understands how to pursue compensation through the Federal Employer's Liability Act (FELA) or for Railroad Retirement Board disability benefits can give your family the resources you need now and in the future.

Get the Information & Support You Need

If you or someone you love is a railroader with a disability caused by years of work and physical stress, then we can help you understand and review all of your options. We know the law and we are proud to have helped hundreds of families protect their rights.
