Leading FELA Law Firm Pairs Up With Cumulative Injury Lawyer Pioneers

Thousands of railroad workers, in every craft, have suffered severe cumulative trauma injuries over the course of their careers. It wasn't until recent years, however, that railroad employees are able to seek fair and just compensation under FELA law. For years, it was difficult to prove negligence on behalf of the railroad companies for cumulative claims, and the carriers were reluctant to settle as they would in a single-event railroad injury claim. The evolving science in the area of whole body vibration to the upper back, lower back and hips is fast becoming recognized as a viable claim in all state and federal courts.

Attorneys referred to as FELA cumulative trauma lawyer "pioneers," along with the help of ergonomists, vocational experts and medical doctors have opened the door for injured railroad workers by making it evident that railroad companies ( and carriers are liable for cumulative trauma injuries. According to legal professionals, such pioneers have proven that while major carriers are aware of the potential dangers and health risks involved with the way in which their employees are required to work and perform everyday tasks, they have done nothing to warn them of such risks.

Gordon & Elias, L.L.P., an experienced FELA law firm, have entered into an "Of Counsel" relationship with two lawyers who they consider "pioneers" and national leaders in cumulative trauma cases. This relationship with these attorneys is in preparation to help injured railroad workers ( recover compensation for their losses.
