FELA was created for injured railroad workers or the families of those killed on the job, and made the railroad company liable for worker injuries. If you are a railroad or train worker who is injured while on duty you are probably protected by FELA, and you do not have to be injured by a train but simply be a railroad related worker for a railroad-related employer.
