Were You Injured in a Railroad Accident?
When someone’s car is hit by a train, the railroad’s insurance company is quick to offer a settlement. If a railroad employee is injured, the laws for recovering benefits can be so confusing that the injured worker may never obtain the compensation he or she deserves.
Since 1990, The Brad Hendricks Law Firm has advocated on behalf of people injured due to the negligence of others. We welcome all inquiries involving train accident injuries—whether from people injured at a railroad crossing or from injured railway workers. Due to the dangerous nature of trains and railroad crossings, Arkansas law heavily favors railroad accident victims. We use the law to protect our clients’ rights and maximize the compensation they receive.
Contact our law firm today for a free initial consultation with a Little Rock, Arkansas, railroad injury attorney. If for whatever reason we feel we cannot provide the level of representation you need, we will refer you to an experienced lawyer who can.
Arkansas FELA Accident Lawyers
A special law known as the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) protects railroad workers injured on the job. Under FELA, a railroad worker can sue for injuries suffered as a result of employer negligence.
Unlike in worker’s compensation cases, an injured railway employee must prove there was some act of negligence in order to receive compensation and benefits. Negligence is often applied loosely and can involve a general act such as the failure to provide safe working conditions. However, it is still important to have an attorney involved. Even if you can prove negligence on your own, the insurance company may significantly lower the settlement offer unless you have legal counsel to advocate your interests.
Our lawyers understand railroad injury and FELA cases. We devote extensive time and resources to helping make sure you recover the full and fair damages you deserve.
We Understand Your Case From a Personal Perspective
One of our attorney’s family members was injured at a railroad crossing. We know firsthand how frightening this experience can be for both the victims of railroad accidents and their families. We also know that railroad companies who place trains out where individuals may be hurt or killed have no qualms about settling with a victim at the very site of the accident, when adrenaline, fear, and confusion can be overwhelming. Before any settlement should even be considered, it is vital that a victim contact us for compassionate, yet tough legal counsel. We will guide you through the process of filing a personal injury or FELA claim. We will be with you to answer your questions and calm your fears every step of the way.
