Getting On and Off Equipment

Getting on and off of railroad equipment, moving or stationary can be dangerous. Especially when you consider the multitude of slip and trip hazards like oil, mud etc... that are usually present during railroad work. Most class 1 railroads no longer allow getting on or off moving equipment (GOOME) because it is an inherently unsafe practice that historically led to numerous injuries every year.

In the event, that you are injured while getting on and off equipment, consult an FELA injury attorney experienced in handling such cases. Contact us today for references from satisfied clients injured while getting on or off railroad equipment.
