At Jacobs & Jacobs, we help people who have been injured in railroad accidents recover compensation for the losses they have suffered. Our attorneys have extensive experience working in federal courts throughout the region, where these cases are often tried.
Train accidents in which railroad workers are injured are not covered under conventional personal injury law. These cases fall under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA). In order to properly handle a FELA claim, it is important to have an attorney who is well-versed in these statutes and familiar with the complex process, which includes detailed paperwork and important deadlines.
Our lawyers have successfully handled numerous railroad injury cases for clients throughout Connecticut. We will work to help you obtain compensation for your medical bills, lost wages and other hardships.
