Scott County Train Crash Last Month Should Result in FELA Claims

The horrific head-on Scott County train crash last month should result in FELA claims for the four injured victims.  The train crash between two Norfolk Southern trains last month occurred around 11:15 PM on Sunday March 18.  Crews on one of the trains told a witness the northbound train had run through a switch designed to separate the trains onto different tracks where it hit a southbound train which had stopped near the switch.

Four railroad workers on board the two trains were injured and sent to a local hospital for treatment.  A head-on collision of this nature can be quite severe and often results in catastrophic injuries or loss of life.  In this case it sounds as if all four railroad workers have survived the impact and we are thankful that there were no serious injuries noted in initial reports from the scene.

While the Federal Railroad Administration and Norfolk Southern are investigating the accident, the injured railroad workers should contact the experienced Federal Employers Liability Act or FELA injury attorneys at Hargadon, Lenihan & Herrington (HLH) to discuss what has happened and to begin the process of injury claims against Norfolk Southern and other responsible parties.

Railroad work is extremely hazardous and the related FELA injury claims are quite legally complex.  Federal regulations that govern railroad injuries provide valuable additional protections and claims for railroad workers.  HLH attorneys have extensive experience in FELA railroad injury claims and work aggressively to ensure our clients recover the compensation they deserve.

The Scott County train crash last month should result in FELA claims, but there is a limited time for injured railroad workers to submit their claims under the law.  We invite those who are injured in railroad or FELA related injuries to review the recommendations of our clients and the legal industry and contact HLH or call for a free consultation at (866) 583-9701.  You will speak directly with an experienced injury attorney with expertise in FELA injury claims.
