HOEY & FARINA'S NEWSLETTER FOR RAILROADERS
The FELA lawyers of Hoey & Farina, P.C. are pleased to provide you with our free email newsletter, Straight Track, written specifically for railroad workers and their families.
Straight Track can help you stay safe at work and be prepared before an on-the-job injury by keeping you informed of railroad work safety issues and your legal rights under the Federal Employer’s Liability Act – the FELA. (Injured railroaders are not covered by Workers’ Compensation.)
Straight Track provides information on subjects such as: what is the FELA, what railroad new hires should know, safety around moving equipment, signs of PTSD, video surveillance, the role of the railroad injury reports, the goal of railroad claim agents, formal investigations, how to prove whistleblower retaliation, protecting against seasonal work place hazards, and more.
We hope you find Straight Track helpful and informative. All of our Straight Track newsletters are available on our website and can be searched for by subject matter(s) or key word(s) using our Search function. If there are subjects you would like discussed in future editions of Straight Track, please let us know. Your feed back is appreciated in our efforts to better serve you and your fellow railroaders.
