Practice Areas

The attorneys at Keller & Goggin, P.C. are trial attorneys dedicated to advocating the rights of injured railroad workers who were hurt by the railroad’s negligence. They are experts in the scope and depth of the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA). The FELA is a federal statute that, in conjunction with other federal rail safety statutes (Locomotive Inspection Act, Safety Appliance Act, Roadway Worker Protection Act, and Rail Safety Act) and regulations, allows a railroad employee to seek money damages from his or her railroad employer for injuries caused, in whole or in part, by the railroad’s failure to keep its obligation of a safe workplace. See our section of the FELA for more information about the FELA or call our office for a free consultation.
