This law was first created in the early years of the Industrial Revolution, set in motion by President Abraham Lincoln. The purpose of the law was to provide protections for the exponentially growing railroad industry. At that time, many railroad workers were suffering horrible injuries. Some even lost their lives and left their families spouseless and fatherless.
Before President Lincoln and the Congress put Railroad Law law into effect, there was literally no hope for victims and their families to seek compensation for their anguish. Much like the laws that protect the open sea, the unusually dangerous nature of life on the railroad has been offset by this law. It helps ensure financial security for railroad workers. Personal injury almost always accompanies cases in which railroads and trains are involved.
