At Bremseth Law Firm, we have been proudly and aggressively representing catastrophically injured individuals for over 35 years. We are nationally known and respected as a leading railroad injury firm, having represented thousands of railroad workers who have been injured or killed on the job and seeking compensation on their behalf under the Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA) and related safety statutes; for example, the Federal Safety Appliance Act (FSAA); the Federal Locomotive Inspection Act (LIA), and the Federal Rail Safety Act (FRSA).
We have successfully litigated claims against major rail carriers in courts across the country, and we have won significant awards on behalf of clients who have suffered all manner of workplace injuries, including (but certainly not limited to) those that are unfortunately all too common (e.g., muscle strains, torn tendons, broken bones, herniated disks), as well as those that are truly catastrophic (amputations, toxic exposures, traumatic brain injuries or death).
Powerful Representation In Serious Personal Injury Cases
In addition to serving injured railroad workers and their families, The Bremseth Law Firm also has an extensive personal injury practice. Our lawyers represent individuals all over the Midwest who have suffered injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents, medical negligence, defective products or premises and hazardous toxic exposures.
Regardless of nature or cause, the lawyers and staff at The Bremseth Law Firm understand that each injury, and its effects, is as unique as the individual who suffers it. We work together to ensure that our clients all get the individual attention their case deserves and that every client receives the benefit of our collective efforts and legal knowledge.
Each of our attorneys is a skilled litigator and appellate practitioner, and each of our paralegals has over 20 years of experience working with injured clients and their families. We also have a team of skilled investigators, each of whom spent years working for the railroad before suffering on-the-job injuries. We bring all of this experience to bear in each case we litigate.
FELA Litigation Wherever Rails Cross The Country
Like the rails themselves, our efforts to secure just compensation for injured railroad workers extend nationwide, and we proudly serve injured railroad workers throughout the United States, especially in the states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Colorado, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Nevada and California.
Our clients are similarly diverse, and we have been honored to represent members of all railroad crafts and unions, including the United Transportation Union, Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen, Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees, Transportation Communications Union, Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen, National Conference of Firemen and Oilers, and International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, Blacksmiths, Iron Ship Builders, Forgers and Helpers.

Our home office is in Minnetonka, Minnesota, just outside Minneapolis. But we have tried cases and partnered with law firms across the country. These other law firms serve as local counsel and generally assist with administrative tasks such as scheduling and facilitating court filings. Our clients and defense attorneys alike know us by our reputation as serious attorneys with a willingness and desire to try cases, with a long and consistent history of success.
If you or a family member or friend has been injured in a railroad or other accident, contact Bremseth Law Firm at 952-475-2800 and tell us your story. We will help you to understand your rights under the law and offer advice about what steps to take in order to protect those rights. The railroads and insurance companies employ teams of claims agents and adjusters, all of whom have one goal in mind, to limit the claims of injured individuals.
