Recovering From Cold Weather Related New Jersey and New York Railroad Accident Injuries

Many people in New York and New Jersey depend on trains and railroad workers. Whether we commute or travel by train, the railroad is an important part of our transportation network. We expect the trains to run in almost any kind of weather; thus, we expect railroad workers to work in almost any kind of weather. However, that expectation does not protect railroad employers from liability if a worker is injured in a weather related work accident.

Many cold-weather related accidents can be prevented if workers are provided with warm clothes, the chance to warm up in heated areas, and if their exposure to the elements is limited.

Call an Attorney if You've Suffered a New York or New Jersey Railroad injury

If you have been hurt in a cold-weather-related New Jersey or New York railroad accident, you may be entitled to damages. FELA allows railroad workers to compensation if their injuries were the result of their employers' negligence. Potential damages may include compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.

If you've been injured in a New York or New Jersey railroad accident, please contact our experienced lawyers for more information. Our experienced attorneys can be reached at 1-800-362-9329 or via our online contact form.
