My New York Railroad Employer Wants to Classify My Injury as Non-Occupational. Is this important?
If you suffer an occupational injury while working for the railroad, then you have certain protections afforded to you by the FRSA. Some of those protections do not apply if you suffer a non-occupational injury. Thus, the classification of your injury may be critically important both to your financial recovery from your injury and to the protections the FRSA affords you in your job.
If you have been hurt in a New York or New Jersey railroad accident, then it is important to learn about your rights and how to protect them. Please call a New York FELA lawyer today.
