Protecting Injured Workers Under FELA & the Jones Act

Railroad and maritime work is dangerous. At one time, these injured workers had no right to medical treatment and families had no right to payments in the event of a fatal work accident. Today, if you have been injured, you have rights. If a loved one has died in a work accident, the family has rights. The Federal Employers Liability Act (“FELA”) has protected railroad workers since 1908. The Jones Act has covered maritime workers since 1920.

Attorneys at Gray, Ritter & Graham in St. Louis have represented workers covered under FELA and the Jones Act since 1946. We know the laws well, and we are diligent in fighting for the rights of workers and their families. We have worked side by side with railroad unions advancing the cause of safety in the workplace.

Work on railroads, river barges and seagoing vessels is often dangerous. Congress has long recognized the danger and the need for the extra protections offered to workers through the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) for railroad workers and the Jones Act for maritime workers.
