Settlement Funding for FELA (Federal Employers’ Liability Act) Cases

Fair Rate Funding helps clients obtain cash advances on their lawsuits.

FELA Cases

In response to a growing need, the United States Congress passed the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA) which authorized the compensation of railroad employees for injuries sustained on the job. Although the law arose out of the need to compensate injured or killed railroad workers as the country expanded westward in the 1800’s, today, railroad workers who are injured on the job can still recover compensation for job-related personal injuries.

FELA requires railroad companies to provide employees with a safe workplace. It also mandates that workers are properly trained, equipped and supervised. Railroads must inspect the work environment to ensure it is free of hazards and to ensure employees receive adequate medical assistance, if needed. Prior to the passing of this legislation, it was extremely uncommon for a worker to receive cash compensation for their injuries.

The FELA allows for recovery of the following damages upon a finding of negligence:

  • Wrongful Death Compensation Damages including Loss of Consortium
  • Past and Future Lost Wages
  • Past and Future Medical Expenses
  • Pain, Suffering and Mental Distress
  • Loss of Insurance and Other Benefits
  • Other Damages

FELA cases routinely involve major injuries and the treatment is often extensive. For this reason, a great deal of time can pass between the injury date and the day the worker receives compensation. During this time, victims face financial difficulty while they wait for the claim to be resolved. Because they are often unable to earn a wage, victims cannot earn the money they need for day to day expenses. Under these circumstances, settlement funding is the answer.
