Cases of Interest: FELA Case in Chicago
Our most recently filed FELA case in Chicago concerns a railroad worker who was in a company vehicle on a highway when he lost control of it on a wintry, wet, and slushy day. Our investigation showed that two of the tires had been replaced a few months before the accident but the other tires had not and were like banana skins with insufficient tire tread depth to keep traction on the road.
Chicago FELA Lawyer / FELA Attorney
A FELA case is unlike most personal injury cases in that the FELA statute, akin to workers compensation laws for nonrailroad workers, only requires that “slight negligence” be proven and that this negligence was a possible, not necessarily probable cause, of the accident.
