The Irwin Fritchie railroad and transportation group has a national reputation for defending tough transportation litigation. We routinely handle complex claims based upon the specialized laws and regulations that govern the rail industry, including major 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.
Railroad and transportation matters demand skilled counsel who ensure that our clients receive all available statutory protections. Our work in this field has earned Irwin Fritchie the recognition as one of the nation’s “Best Law Firms” by Best Lawyers® because our lawyers provide sound, strategic advice early in the defense of disputed claims. We also possess the negotiations, motion practice, and trial skills necessary to achieve our clients’ goals, and our extensive national experience and effective case management allow us to reduce overall costs for our clients.
