$885,000 FELA Settlement

December 19, 2023

Attorney John. J Coyle settled an FELA case for $885,000 for a union railroad worker, John Felder, who suffered serious injuries on the job, while loading railroad ties.

Mr. Felder and a coworker were tasked with moving railroad ties onto a flatbed truck without the assistance of any appropriate equipment when the tie slipped out of the co-workers hand resulting in a serious injury to our client. McEldrew Purtell is proud to represent members of the railroad community to ensure safety, accountability and to secure the outcome that they deserve.
