FELA Claims

Legal Funding for Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) Claims

Get Financial Assistance for Your FELA Claim Today

The Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) was codified into law under 45 U.S.C. §51. The act ensures that employers are held liable for any workplace injuries or wrongful death resulting from their negligence. Enacted in 1908, the law was designed to protect injured railroad workers and applies to common carriers. FELA claims can take up to a year to resolve, making it difficult for railroad workers and their injury to pay medical bills and living expenses.

Triumph Legal Funding helps provide financial assistance for attorneys and their clients as they wait for their case’s outcome. If you need cash before your case settles, we can help. We do not offer high-interest loans, but rather provide a lawsuit advance that is paid back through a portion of your recovery. You never pay any fees unless you win. If you need money now, call Triumph at (973) 362-3500 to get the funding you need without a loan.

Why Choose Pre-Settlement Legal Funding for your FELA Claim?

When an employer causes or contributes to an employee’s injury, they must be held accountable. Unfortunately, filing a FELA claim against a railroad company can take substantial resources and access to capital. 

Many railroad employees injured on the job may be unable to work, limiting their ability to pay for things like groceries and housing. Too often, employers and their insurance companies offer settlements for significantly less than a claim is worth because they know the employee cannot afford to wait for a better offer.

Triumph helps to level the playing field. By providing pre-settlement legal funding for railroad workers and their attorneys, FELA claims can be pursued without financial hardship. Attorneys can fully litigate cases, proving the extent of a person’s injuries and the exact cause of an accident. Pre-settlement legal funding helps attorneys to get the best possible outcome and the maximum compensation in a person’s case.

  • Fast and easy application process
  • Personal funding specialists
  • Access to cash in as little as 24 hours after approval

FELA Rules and Requirements

As reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are over 150,000 railroad workers in the United States. The need to protect these workers remains critical to our infrastructure. Congress, recognizing the need for railroad companies to provide a safe work environment for their employees, passed the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA).

Under FELA, injured railroad workers may obtain compensation for the following types of damages:

  • Medical costs and treatment
  • Lost wages
  • Future lost earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Value of household services

According to federal statute, a person only has three (3) years from the accident or injury date to bring a FELA action. Failure to bring an action against an employer within the statute of limitations can result in a dismissal of the claim.
