Railroads accidents in Hawaii often result in serious injury or death.
Railroad accidents often involve heavy equipment on trains that can travel at very high speeds.
The Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) was enacted in 1908 to protect railroad workers. FELA compensates railroad workers for injuries that occurred on the job.
FELA also allows railroad workers to sue their employer for pain and suffering.
Passengers who are injured while riding trains may also seek compensation for their injuries.
