Can the railroad fire me for hiring a lawyer?
It is unlawful for the railroad to fire you for hiring or consulting with a lawyer. In fact, you are more likely to be abused if you do not have a union-approved lawyer fighting for you. There are protections in FELA against companies retaliating against workers, but retaliation usually occurs in situations where the employee complaining is not represented. It is important to protect yourself and your family by calling the experienced FELA lawyers at Davis, Saunders, Miller & Oden to handle your case.
