Personal Injury Practice Areas
Car Accidents & Motor Vehicle Injuries
If you were in an auto accident due to another’s negligence, you may be eligible to recover lost wages, medical bills, and more. Whether you were injured as a driver, passenger, cyclist, or pedestrian, we’ll work to make sure you are compensated fairly.
If you have lost a loved one due to another’s negligence, we’ll fight for justice. Our team will help you navigate legal issues with care and compassion during this difficult time.
Medical negligence occurs when a medical provider fails to meet the standard of care in diagnosis or treatment and causes serious injury or death. If this happened to you or a loved one, you may have a viable malpractice claim.
If you or a loved one have been seriously injured by a dangerous or defective product, we fight for fair compensation.

“Keating O’Gara stood up for me and took the burden when I didn’t have the strength to stand for myself. When we sat face to face, they listened to my story as though I was their only client. It was relief knowing that I had a trustworthy and highly experienced team speaking on my behalf. It became apparent that they cared about me as a person as well as respecting my wishes. It was far more personable than I ever expected it to be. More than a typical attorney, it became the comfort of friendly faces and a highly compassionate experience that helped me get through a very traumatic time.”
“Keating O’Gara took a lot of the stress and worry about medical bills, etc. away from me after an accident and took it upon themselves. It allowed me to concentrate on healing and moving forward. Our attorney was very reassuring and that gave me a great deal of peace of mind during my recovery. The fact that he came to the hospital for the initial consultation spoke highly of his commitment to getting all the facts and details in order to move forward with the case. I am so very satisfied with the outcome. Thank you to Keating O’Gara for having such caring individuals working there!”
“My wife and I can’t recommend Keating O’Gara Law Firm enough! We were lost and didn’t know if or how to pursue our case after a traumatic and permanent injury from a medical procedure. Jeff Downing, along with his assistant Elizabeth, guided us the entire way through almost 4 years of the legal process with our medical malpractice case. They were thoughtful and caring throughout, and understood the emotional toll the legal process can be with depositions and playing the waiting game. Jeff was able to negotiate a settlement that went above our expectations, especially since medical malpractice cases rarely have a favorable outcome. My wife and I are truly grateful that the Good Lord led us to Jeff, and will not hesitate to use the firm again for all our legal needs.”
