We Understand Life With Injuries

At Godwin Hurley Donoghue, LLP, we are primarily focused on railroad law (FELA), car accidents, construction accidents, slip and fall, and all other injury cases. We know the chaos and pain that often follows an injury. Our firm started working to represent those injured on the railroad because we have relatives who have worked on the railroads, still work on the railroads, or have held union positions with the railroad. We understand the dynamics between railroad management and workers, and how that can make it difficult for workers to secure the compensation they deserve. We know that not all workers understand the Federal Employees Liability Act (FELA) benefits to which they are entitled. With the experience gained from FELA cases, we are able to litigate a variety of personal injury matters for injured victims in New York State. Godwin Hurley Donoghue, LLP has recovered millions for those suffering injuries due to the negligence of another motor vehicle, including motorcycles, boats, commercial trucks, and cars, or a slip and fall injury to the negligence of the property owner. Please call our firm to schedule your free consultation today.
