Transportation

The movement of people and goods can be a risky business. Common carriers, trucking companies, maritime and railroad transportation hinge on many moving parts. Claims of property damage or personal injury, including wrongful death and class action litigation, require skilled legal representation. Often the result of tragic accidents and high-profile in nature, we bring empathy, skilled crisis management, and technical experience to our defense of Transportation industry clients.

We have represented railroads in the defense of claims raised under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) lawsuits as related to railroad workers injured on the job. In addition, we have represented individual clients in personal injury lawsuits, as well as in suits brought against public agencies.
