Transportation Law

Extensive Experience in Litigation Involving Railroad & Over-the-Road Vehicles

Our clients have routinely singled out our transportation law practice group for litigation involving railroads and over-the-road vehicles because of our attorneys’ expertise in this area of the law. We have been retained by the largest manufacturer of highway trailers for litigation in Missouri, and we serve as Regional Counsel for Waste Management, Inc., the largest material waste handler in the country in litigation from Colorado to Minnesota. Our attorneys also litigate matters for major commercial fleet operators for cases pending in Missouri, Kansas and Illinois.

For over two decades, our attorneys have also been recognized as among the best in the nation for railroad litigation. We currently represent Class I and regional carriers in Illinois, Missouri, Kansas and Arkansas. Additionally, our transportation law practice group is experienced with not only grade crossing litigation and cases arising under the Federal Employers Liability Act, but also commerce matters and disputes regarding the Intra Industry Claims Agreement.

  • Defective Equipment
  • Improper maintenance
