Oklahoma City Railroad Defense Attorneys

Hiltgen & Brewer, P.C. provides its clients, a cost effective, intelligent counsel in defense of various claims asserted against Railroad companies. Federal Employees Liability Act Plaintiffs attorneys have become quite aggressive in pressing that all injuries that railroad workers suffer while on the job are the railroads fault and liability. While the standard for FELA cases is lower than general negligence, Plaintiff is still required to prove negligence and causation.

FELA created a cause of action for damages relating to injuries and or death caused by the negligence of a common carrier, including rail roads engaged in interstate commerce. FELA supersedes both common laws and state laws that cover liability for railroad injuries to employees who work in interstate commerce and are injured on the job.

Hiltgen & Brewer's experienced attorneys are knowledgeable in FELA and related Federal Railroad Administration regulations including but not limited to, the Federal Safety Appliance Act and Locomotive Inspection Act. For further information about our quality experienced legal counsel for your transportation business, please contact the FELA department of the law offices of Hiltgen & Brewer, P.C. to meet you transportation company's needs.

Hiltgen & Brewer's railroad defense department is also experienced in defending railroad crossing cases as well as other property damage claims asserted against railroads. If your railroad or related business has any questions or needs representation, please contact Hiltgen & Brewer to satisfy your company's legal defense goals.
