When Signalmen suffer a work-related injury or illness, BRS members or their families are encouraged to determine their rights and benefits under the Federal Employers' Liability Act before agreeing to any settlement with the railroad employer. The BRS has designated the attorneys listed in this directory to serve as qualified counsel for BRS members in employee injury cases covered by FELA.
Attorneys are listed by state and are designated to serve BRS members living or working in the general region of their offices. Designation of FELA counsel is by authority of the BRS Executive Counsel only. For questions not related to FELA, feel free to contact the listed attorneys, or utilize Union Plus to obtain quality legal assistance for an affordable price.
BRS members are encouraged to provide information regarding FELA cases, including criticism or commendations regarding the service of designated counsel, and information on injuries and settlements. This information, which will be used in the continuing evaluation of this program, should be sent to Michael S. Baldwin, President, Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen, 917 Shenandoah Shores Road, Front Royal, VA 22630-6418.
