Practice areas
  1. Transportation
    Bristol began working for a union designated FELA lawfirm as his first job after law school handling cases for injured railroad workers. He's achieved multiple million dollar verdicts against Class 1 railroads. By handling many train vs semi truck collision cases for injured railroaders Bristol also became an expert on representing people injured by 18 wheelers against insurance companies and trucking companies.

    28 years, 600 cases

  2. Trucking accident

    28 years, 150 cases

I'm well EXPERIENCED in maximizing recovery for victims of TRUCKING ACCIDENT cases. My original experiences with truck accident cases came from litigating 100s of grade crossing collision cases for injured railroaders involved in a semi-truck collision. This experience has proved valuable in my fight on behalf of the anyone who has been injured by an 18 -wheeler or semi-truck in an accident.

I work to improve my skills as an attorney everyday and I am very proud of my client satisfaction record. 

I have been handling FELA (Federal Employer's Liability Act) cases for injured railroad workers since 1994. We are dedicated to providing excellent representation for railroad employees injured on the job. In 1996, I became the youngest attorney to be awarded a million dollar verdict against a class one railroad. 

We also handle railroad whistleblower cases under the FRSA (Federal Railroad Safety Act.)

We are proud members of the Academy of Rail Labor Attorneys.

The Man For The JOB.
I was in an automobile accident in 2017 and consulted with Mr. Baxley. I knew after 10 minutes of talking to him he was the man for the job. Mr. Baxley’s entire staff are extremely helpful and very knowledgeable. Everyone on his team helped me out. There was always someone available to answer any and all questions. They explained everything to me in great detail, and left no unanswered questions. I felt extremely comfortable hiring Mr. Baxley. He and his team can and will help you with your legal needs. I have absolutely no regrets.

One Hell of an Attorney!!
I was injured while working for the railroad. I didn't know what to do or where to turn until I hired Mr. Bristol Baxley. He and his excellent staff steered me in the right direction and exceeded all of my legal and personal needs. They really do go above and beyond! Mr. Baxley pays attention to every single small detail and he will make sure that you and the railroad both get what you deserve. If you need a FELA attorney, call Bristol Baxley!

Good RR attorney
I explained my case to Baxley and he advised me against signing a settlement, since I was not being treated fairly by the company I had worked for. He protected my rights and got a fair settlement for my case.

"I highly recommend Bristol Baxley to anyone seeking a personal injury lawyer in the Houston and east Texas area. Very few lawyers work as hard as Bristol does for his clients and even fewer lawyers have the skills that Bristol possesses! He has successfully prosecuted all types of personal injury, FELA and Jones Act cases and is second to none in what he does."
