Experts in Federal Employer’s Liability Act (FELA) Claims
Railroad workers in this country have specific protection from on-the-job injuries under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA). Passed in 1908, this law provides benefits to railroad employees and their families should there be a work-related injury, illness, or death.
The problem with FELA is that benefits are notoriously difficult to obtain without the assistance of a qualified and aggressive FELA attorney. Burge & Burge, PC, is proud of its advocacy of railroad workers rights, having handled hundreds of FELA cases throughout the U.S.
Knowledgeable Disability and Worker’s Compensation Attorneys
When a disabling injury or illness makes it necessary for you or a family member to apply for Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplement Security Income (SSI) or worker’s compensation, you expect those benefits to be available. Unfortunately, the system is riddled with red tape, and many find their claims quickly denied.
Burge & Burge, PC understand the frustrations and financial hardships that this system can cast on families who are already dealing with enough pain. Our Alabama SSD/SSI lawyers can help with both the application and appeal process for these benefits. If you have a work-related injury, our Alabama worker’s compensation lawyers are ready to help you obtain the benefits you deserve.
