Railroads

Our nationwide transportation team represents numerous railroads, railroad suppliers, switching entities, contractors, shippers, and carriers on contract matters and issues related to cargo and the transportation of goods. Our experience includes representing clients in defending Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) claims, Federal Rail Safety Act (FRSA) claims, railroad crossing accidents, property and tax disputes, employment matters, regulatory compliance, contract drafting, and many other transportation related matters. A large majority of our work involves defending our clients against claims involving the Federal Employers Liability Act (“FELA”).

Given the volatile nature of the transportation industry, in the event of an accident, our team responds quickly to calls, day or night, and is prepared to be on site to ensure our clients’ interests are protected.
