Railroad Worker Injury Law Lawyers In Warm Springs Montana

Warm Springs is a rural neighborhood of Anaconda, Montana, United States, and the site of the state psychiatric hospital, Montana State Hospital. The hospital was founded by the Territorial Government of Montana in 1877. The "warm springs" are located on the hospital campus. Hot water seeps from an unusual limestone cone that is about 40 feet high. The Native Americans called this the "Lodge of the Whitetailed Deer" giving the Deer Lodge Valley its name. There are no community services other than a restaurant and convenience store on the frontage road and a post office (zip code 59756) on the hospital campus. Excellent brown trout fishing can be found in the Clark Fork River just east of Warm Springs and in the ponds on the Warm Springs Wildlife Management Area. Warm Spings is also the name of a large freshwater spring located approx. 20 miles NW of Lewistown, Mt on a private ranch. During the summer, it is a local popular place to go swimming. The ranch charges a small entrance fee for the spring. Amenities include a picnic area shaded by large deciduous trees, boardwalks along a couple sections of the water, a gravel-bottomed shallow area of the spring for little kids, & several port-a-potty bathrooms.

What is railroad worker injury law?

Railroad worker injuries are covered under the Federal Employees Liability Act which requires that a railroad maintains their fleet, ensuring that their trains are in good working order and free of defects. If a railroad does not comply with these standards, they may be liable for injuries to their workers. Damages railroad workers may receive include medical treatments, present and future lost wages and mental trauma. An injury on the railway can range from a minor sprain to a spinal injury so severe that it leads to death. Some of the most common injuries that affect railway workers are head trauma, knee injuries, back injuries, neck injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, brain trauma or spinal cord injuries. The Federal Employees Liability Act protects railroad workers and others as diverse as clerical employees whose day-to-day functions do not directly involve trains or outdoor activity.
