Our attorneys represent railroad companies in litigation involving personal injury, property damage, and employment matters. A substantial portion of our railroad practice is the defense of personal injury matters brought by railroad employees under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act, a federal statute providing the exclusive remedy to railroad employees who have allegedly sustained injury or contracted an occupational disease while employed by a rail carrier. Our attorneys have litigated FELA matters involving acute injuries, claims of cumulative trauma, and those alleging occupational hearing loss.
