About the Firm

Jones Granger has been representing railway employees for over 50 years in matters pertaining to on-the-job injuries, asbestos-related disease, injuries due to exposure to toxic chemicals, and many other railroad-related issues.

The railroad trade labor unions have appointed certain attorneys to act as their "designated counsel". Union appointed attorneys serve the unions in a variety of advisory roles. Jones Granger is pleased to serve or has served in this capacity for the following unions:

  • IAMAW Designated Counsel
  • NCFO Designated Counsel
  • IBB Designated Counsel
  • BRS Designated Counsel
  • BLET Designated Counsel
  • SMW Designated Counsel
  • BMWED Designated Counsel
  • TCU Designated Counsel
  • SMART-TD Designated Counsel

Our home office is located at 10000 Memorial Drive in Houston, Texas.

As designated counsel, Jones Granger specializes in the representation of railroad employees for injuries suffered on the job. Railroad workers, like no other workers in the country, fall under a federal law commonly known as the "Federal Employers' Liability Act" or FELA. It is important to understand that this is a highly specialized law that requires experienced FELA attorneys. Railroad accident attorneys, or FELA lawyers, must completely understand this law to represent the railroad employee with regard to their FELA injury.

Railroad injury claims are extremely complicated

And, in most cases, should not be handled by the injured railroad employee. The railroad claim departments are staffed with highly trained railroad lawyers and railroad claim agents, whose sole purpose is to reduce, or to completely eliminate any potential claims that an injured employee may have. These individuals are very well versed in the handling of these FELA accidents and injuries. Regardless of the extent of the injuries that you may have received as a result of your railroad accident, please feel free to contact us for any help or advice that you might need.
