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 is one of the best known FELA lawyers in the United States.
