Railroads often hire contractors to perform railroad related work. In certain circumstances, even though your paycheck comes from another company, you may be considered a railroad employee or covered by laws that protect railroad workers, including the Federal Employers’ Liability Act and the Federal Rail Safety Act.
Attorney Ryan Furniss has helped railroad workers across the country and has filed, settled, and tried lawsuits against the railroad on behalf of contract workers including hostler drivers and loaders/unloaders of auto-rack railcars. Contact Ryan today for a free consultation about your rights.
