Railroad Injury and Fatality Statistics

According to FELA, if a railroad worker is injured while on the job, he or she may be entitled to monetary compensation although not workers compensation. The amount of monetary compensation an injured railroad worker may collect depends on many factors, including how much fault lies on both the defendant (the employer) and the plaintiff (the injured worker). In many cases, injured railroad workers may be able to obtain a higher amount of monetary compensation, as compared to similarly injured (non-railroad) workers who filed for workers compensation.

The following are some recent United States injury and fatality statistics concerning railroad workers:

In the U.S., it is the responsibility of railroad employers to provide their railroad workers with a safe workplace that is free of hazards. The Federal Employers Liability Act was passed in 1908 due to the high number of railroad workers who had suffered fatal injuries while on the job.
