How to Pursue a Legal Recovery for a New York Railroad Amputation Injury

The damage is obvious. You have been hurt in a New York railroad accident and you are missing a limb. While the connection is painfully clear to you, it may also come as no surprise to you that the railroad is going to try to limit your financial recovery. To maintain your standard of living, and perhaps to get the medical care and rehabilitation services that you need to move forward with your life, it is important to pursue a legal recovery for your injuries. A New York railroad attorney may be able to help you do just that.

How Your New York Railroad Lawyer May Help You

Generally, in order to help you with your recovery, your New York FELA lawyer may:

  • Investigate the cause of your amputation injury. Your lawyer will look at all of the facts of your case and look into whether the railroad followed all applicable regulations and safety guidelines.
  • Help you determine the true cost of your damages. Your damages may include compensation for past and future medical costs, rehabilitation expenses, lost income, out-of-pocket expenses and pain and suffering. Your lawyer can help you estimate what your future expenses may be and what you may reasonably expect for your injuries.
  • Zealously advocate on your behalf. If you have a case against the railroad, then your lawyer will aggressively negotiate and zealously advocate for your full recovery.
