Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA)

Focused on Client Needs Since 1946


Railroad Worker Injuries, Wrongful Death and FELA

The personal injury lawyers at Gray, Ritter & Graham in St. Louis have been protecting the rights of railroad workers since 1946. Railroad companies, their lawyers and their insurers are not in the business of protecting your rights. We are.

FELA Attorneys

GRG is known to railroad workers and their unions throughout the area. We speak at union meetings, and work together with unions to make and strengthen the laws that protect railroad workers. And we represent seriously injured workers and their families. The attorneys at Gray, Ritter & Graham are devoted to our clients in all FELA cases.

  • Accidents happen while working on a train, in a depot, in the machine shop, in the yard or at any point along the tracks and at RR crossings. It is important to report the accident immediately, get medical help, and talk to a GRG lawyer, who knows your rights under FELA.
  • Many train-related injuries are cumulative. This includes carpal tunnel syndrome caused by repetitive and heavy stress, degenerative disc disease and other back injuries, and cancer caused by asbestos exposure (mesothelioma).
  • Railroad injuries are often traumatic. A boiler explosion, a crash, an equipment failure in the machine shop, or an on-the-job crossing injury can happen in an instant. The evidence needs to be preserved and examined as soon as possible before the scene changes.

Our law firm knows FELA well, and we will protect your rights

Our attorneys have handled FELA cases for more than 75 years, and we have worked with railroad unions to strengthen the laws. We have investigated accidents at depots, car and machine shops in St. Louis, Kansas City, Chicago, Springfield, Little Rock and points in between. Our goal is always to recover complete compensation for the injured worker.

It costs nothing to call and ask us to review your case. Contact us as soon as possible so that we can preserve the evidence and begin our investigation. We represent clients in Missouri, Illinois, Arkansas and nationwide.
