I Am a Member of a Railroad Union and I Was Hurt While Working on the Railroad in New York Do I


I am a member of a railroad union, and I was hurt while working on the railroad in New York. Do I have to hire the lawyer my union tells me to hire?

No. As an injured railroad worker you have the right to hire the lawyer whom you chose. You may consider the lawyer suggested by the union, but it is important to remember that the New York FELA attorney recommended by the union is just a suggestion.

We encourage you to think about the qualifications of different lawyers and to hire the New York FELA lawyer whom you believe will best represent your interests and protect your potential legal recovery. Specifically, it is important to hire a lawyer who is experienced representing injured New York railroad workers, who is willing to spare no expense to prove your case, and who is dedicated to fighting for the recovery that you deserve.
