If you have been hurt while working on the railroad, your lawyer will bring a FELA claim against your employer. USClaims can help you with pre-settlement funding while you wait for your compensation.
The days of falling off a steam locomotive are long gone, but railroad employee injuries are not. Railroad employees who have been injured on the job can only recover under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA). Under FELA, you can receive payment for past and future lost wages, medical expenses that are not covered by insurance, decreased earning power, and pain and suffering. But when you have been injured and cannot work, or have taken a lower-paying job to make ends meet, waiting for a settlement can be agonizing. You are forced to juggle bills and may be tempted to settle for less than what you really deserve.
If you’re waiting for your FELA lawsuit claim to settle in court and need immediate financial assistance to cover your expenses, contact USClaims to learn how you can get FELA railroad settlement funding today.
