Railroad Accident Lawyers
If you work for Metro North, Amtrak, the Long Island Railroad, PATH, New Jersey Transit, or another railroad, your workplace injury is not covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Instead, in order to recover for any workplace injuries, you must prove that the railroad was at fault. That is why it is essential to have a skilled and experienced railroad injury lawyer fighting for you.
Steve Fitzgerald is that lawyer. For decades, Steve has been fighting for the injured, including under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA). He has tried numerous FELA cases to verdict, including recently obtaining an $11.6 million jury verdict for a locomotive engineer who was injured because of the negligence of his managers at New Jersey Transit.
