Railroad & Transportation

PRACTICE SUMMARY

The railroad and transportation group has a statewide and national reputation for our work defending all aspects of transportation litigation. We routinely handle complex claims based upon specialized laws and regulations that govern the rail industry. Our experience includes railroad-crossing accidents, claims under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act, trespasser incidents, and derailments. We often defend cases involving serious, traumatic injuries and/or multiple deaths. These matters in particular require skilled counsel to ensure that the statutory protections provided to our clients are not overshadowed.

Our attorneys provide sound, strategic advice to our clients early in the defense of disputed claims. And we have the skills in negotiations, motion practice, and trial to achieve our clients’ goals. Our extensive national experience and effective case management also allow us to reduce overall costs for our clients. Our work in this field has earned the recognition as one of the nation’s “Best Law Firms” by Best Lawyers.
