Choosing A Lawyer

Injured rail workers need assertive legal representation. This requires a lawyer experienced in FELA and FRSA claims. Using their more than 55 years of combined experience in the field, the attorneys at Steel & Moss have assembled the following guidelines to help you decide if you need an attorney, and to help you understand how to choose appropriate representation:

  • After an injury, speak to a lawyer familiar with the rail industry. Experience shows that not every injured worker needs a lawyer. Minor injuries with no disability can sometimes be handled directly with claims. At Steel & Moss LLP, we are glad to give free advice in these cases.
  • When searching for an FELA lawyer, always search for a lawyer that has the ability, expertise and willingness to try your FELA case before a jury if the case cannot be settled with the railroad.
  • A good FELA lawyer should be familiar with railroad language and able to translate railroad terms while clearly communicating the facts to a jury at the time of trial. Make certain your lawyer is fluent in railroad terminology and has knowledge of the concepts and procedures involved in today's railroad industry.
  • An attorney's staff needs to understand all aspects of an FELA case and be able to work under attorneys who have the experience to properly manage your FELA case. Their staff should include someone who is an expert at handling and coordinating benefits with the Railroad Retirement Board, the health insurance company, and the short term disability company in certain cases.
  • Search for a law firm that has a long history of success working in this environment, and feel free to ask for names of former clients who can tell you privately about their experience with the firm.
  • Find a lawyer that you can trust and makes you feel comfortable.
