Railroad employees are covered by the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA), not workers’ compensation. Under FELA, the burden of proof to establish fault is lower than in an ordinary negligence case, making it easier for the worker to prevail and recover damages. The worker must simply establish that his employer was negligent in some manner, no matter how slight, and that he suffered injuries as a result. This “featherweight” burden of proof is also used in the Jones Act and provides an advantage to railroad workers and offshore workers who are trying to recover for on-the-job injuries. The attorneys at Zehl & Associates understand the complicated legal standards that apply in railroad injury lawsuits and are experienced in maximizing a railroad worker’s recovery under FELA.

At Zehl & Associates, PC, our Train Accident Lawyers have successfully handled and resolved all types of railroad claims, including amputations, hearing loss, carpal tunnel syndrome, cumulative stress disorder, back injuries, catastrophic injuries and wrongful death.

Our Railroad Accident Lawyers will:

  • Devote whatever time and resources necessary to ensuring you receive the maximum compensation possible
  • Devote whatever resources necessary to ensure that the railroad is held accountable for your injuries and losses
  • Make sure you or your loved ones receive the best medical treatment available
  • Prepare your case for trial in the event the railroad refuses to offer a settlement that fully compensates you for your injuries and losses

I wanted to express my outmost gratitude and appreciation to the Zehl&Associates law firm for the excellent representation in my accident case in December 2016; even though it was a difficult case I could not have been more pleased with how they handled everything. They are very knowledgeable and clearly the top in their field. I would highly recommend them. Thanks Zehl&Associates.

I don’t think I can ever be thankful enough for Lamar DeLong. I’m a single mom, on my way home from work two weeks after I started my new job and two weeks after graduating from college, I was in a horrible car accident. My car was totaled and I was really badly hurt. Lamar took my case and didn’t stop until I was going to be fully taken care of. I now will have little worries about taking the time off of work to get the back and knee surgery I desperately need to be able to function normally. I’m 26, I’m a single parent and Lamar kept that in mind. Zehl&Associates really took care of me. Especially being in completely different cities. A thank you won’t be enough for this firm treating me like family and making sure I was taken care of. Thank you Lamar and all the staff involved in my case.

Ryan Zehl is the best, very nice, helpful, and compassionate. His firm works very hard to help you! I hired them because my brother was killed on a work site, the firm's track record, and they seemed to really care about their clients and cases. Thank you all at Zehl & Associates for your help.

Theres not enough stars to rate the true quality on here! Everything I've heard about lawyers went out the window when Eric took time on Father's day of all days to contact me back and help assist me with a settlement. I was in desperate need of legal advice & guidance and running out of time. Eric was quick, efficient, HONEST, and did more than beyond more to make sure I was legally protected & being treated fairly. I was at my giving up point on everything until that first conversation with Eric. Zehl Law definitely breaks the mold on lawyers. He was more interested in protecting me than trying to take money from me. Which is a rare thing to find in any industry or just people in general, which has definitely been my case involving everything else in my life. But of all people, a lawyer restored my faith in humanity itself. Thank you for that. Thank you for everything! You've been more than amazing!!!

Zehl and Associates took amazing care of me after my accident in January 2018. Lamar was kind, listened to all my fears, and helped me through the process of a lawsuit. I truly appreciate the care the office staff took with me whenever I called. Fantastic firm who were able to settle my case without ever stepping foot in court!

Zehl has been amazing and extremely helpful to our family since my husband was incolved in a plant expolosion in 2015. Everyone from the owner of the firm, Ryan, to each and everyone that has answered the phone has always been more than willing to help in anyway possible. The staff always checked on our family to be sure we had all we needed and showed to really care! I would recommend Zehl and associates to anyone looking for a lawyer to fight a good fight and make sure all clients’ needs are met at the same time!

My husband got injured and we had no idea what to do or where to go. Dealing with personal injury is challenging. Zehl & Associates handled our case from beginning to the end and we could not have been more impressed. Matt, your professionalism is appreciated. Thank you very much for all you have done for us. If anyone is looking for a personal injury attorney, this is the place to go.
