Roger D. Schroen filed a Federal Employers' Liability Act (FELA) suit against Norfolk Southern Railway Company in Madison County Circuit Court April 23, alleging that Norfolk failed to provide him a safe place to work.

Represented by Greg Tobin of East Alton, Schroen claims he was injured after being subjected to numerous repetitive trauma while repairing railroad tracks for Norfolk.

He claims Norfolk failed to provide safe methods of work, failed to provide sufficient manpower and failed to provide safe tools and equipment.

Schroen claims he has sustained severe and permanent injuries to his back, feet, shoulders, and hips, all of which cause great pain and mental anguish, loss of wages and medical expenses.

He is seeking damages in excess of $50,000.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Daniel Stack.
