The business of railroading has long been a dangerous calling.  President Theodore Roosevelt noted in 1906 that the average life expectancy of a railroad worker was just a few years.  Indeed, only 1 in 5 rail workers could expect to die of natural causes – the rest died at work.  Thanks to strict safety laws and ever- improving equipment, railroading is safer now than it was a hundred years ago, but it remains one of the most dangerous jobs in America.

Michael Warshauer and his partners at the
Warshauer Law Group, PC are dedicated to helping injured railroaders and their families obtain full, fair and complete compensation when they are injured or killed while working for America's railroads.  Michael is one of the best known FELA lawyers in the United States.

If you are a railroader or a railroader's spouse, you will find all of the information you need to understand your case as well as evaluate our law firm.  Knowledge is power - get some here.

If you are a lawyer who has never tried an FELA case, you will find enough information to get started.  And if you're a lawyer with lots of FELA experience, this website will be a valuable resource where you can look to find the information you need stored in a single convenient location.

If you are a railroad defense lawyer, you should have better things to do than look at this website - although you are certainly welcome to.  The more true information you have, the more likely you will advise your client to pay fair compensation.

Lastly, if you are a juror in a pending case, you should follow your judge's directions and exit now.

The Warshauer Law Group handles every case on a contingent fee basis.  This means that there is no fee unless we obtain a recovery for you.  In fact, when we accept a case there are no fees or expenses unless we are successful.

Many of clients are referred to us by other lawyers who do not have our expertise in handling FELA cases.  To the extent legal and ethical, these referring lawyers participate in our fees with no obligation for expenses.

Most importantly, whether you are a potential client or lawyer, a phone call to us is always free and without obligation - we are here to help.
