Legal Defense And Counsel For Railroad Companies

Railroad law and litigation are highly complicated matters. The railroad industry is subject to special laws, regulations and challenges, and it is critical to partner with a law firm that has the knowledge and resources to serve your company.

Landrum & Shouse‘s litigation group has a distinguished railroad law history dating back to the firm’s founding. We are designated core counsel by and represent one of the largest Class I railroads in the country.

Navigating Complex Railroad Claims

In our Kentucky railroad representation, we handle:

  • Grade crossing accidents
  • Wrongful death
  • Trespasser injuries
  • Third-party claims
  • Real property damage issues
  • Railway damage due to negligent or intended acts such as eco-terrorism
  • Occupational illness claims
  • Traumatic injury claims (made pursuant to the Federal Employers’ Liability Act)

We have an intimate knowledge of FRSA, FELA and OSHA, as well as personal injury and workers’ compensation claims. These complicated pieces of federal legislation require an in-depth understanding of how to navigate a claim, specifically injuries from train accidents, within the terms of these laws.

Our practice representing railroads pits us against some of the best trial lawyers in the country. Many of our railroad cases involve innovative legal and evidentiary issues. Our Lexington railroad lawyers have earned a respected reputation in the field of railroad defense and are known for vigorously representing our clients’ interests.
