Railroad Worker Injury Law Lawyers In Snow Oklahoma

Snow is a community in Pushmataha County, Oklahoma, 18 miles northeast of Antlers, Oklahoma. A United States Post Office was established here on July 21, 1930. It was named for George Snow, local resident and merchant. Located in the Kiamichi Mountains, but not in the Kiamichi River valley, Snow was very isolated until construction and paving of U.S. Highway 271 during the 1950s, connecting the area to Nashoba, Oklahoma and Clayton, Oklahoma on the north and Antlers on the south. Snow is located along the upper reaches of Big Cedar Creek, which is almost always well watered and experiences reliable flow regardless of season. Although Snow once supported a school, churches and more than one general store, it never developed into a commercial or trading center. Today it has one store. Its school children attend public school in Antlers. During recent years Snow School has been recognized as of historical and architectural significance, and has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. More information on Snow may be found in the Pushmataha County Historical Society.

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.
