Nationally Renowned For Our Success In FELA Cases
At the law firm of Kujawski & Associates LLC, we have a national reputation for our work on Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) cases.
Our results include a record-breaking $8.625 million settlement in 1999, a $10 million verdict in 2010 and our success on behalf of locomotive engineer Bob McBride in the landmark U.S. Supreme Court case of CSX Transportation v. McBride.
Protecting The Rights Of Injured Railroad Workers And Families
Our Illinois-based FELA attorneys help clients nationwide obtain the compensation they need and deserve. Our firm is led by attorney John Kujawski, who has been named designated legal counsel by several railroad worker unions, including:
- National Conference of Firemen and Oilers
- International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers
- American Train Dispatchers Association
- S.M.A.R.T. — International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers
- International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Iron Ship Builders, Blacksmiths, Forgers and Helpers
- Charter and founding member of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen Designated Legal Counsel
- Operating Engineers, Local 520
We help injured railroad employees seek compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. We also represent the families of railroad workers who have died on the job and clients who have been harassed for pursuing injury and safety issues.
Why You Need An Attorney With Proven Experience
As a niche area of law, FELA cases demand exacting advocacy. You should never entrust your rights and recovery to an attorney who is inexperienced or unfamiliar with this field.
This outstanding track record of results demonstrates our dedication, preparation and professionalism.
We Understand The Industry
Our legal team is intimately familiar with the railroad industry. Both of our principal attorneys grew up in working-class families. We have valuable insight into the challenges railroad workers face, which helps us build strong cases and compelling arguments in railroad worker injury cases.

- What kind of damages can you get?
