As part of our work with railroads and other transportation clients, the attorneys at Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC are called upon to respond to transportation related accidents involving train derailments, chemical releases, and personal injuries. We assist our clients from the initial phases of accident response and investigation through the ultimate resolution of the claims. By working directly with engineers and safety expert witnesses, we are able to determine the root cause of incidents and assign ultimate responsibility to the proper party or parties. We also address issues that arise with the Federal Railroad Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, and other regulatory bodies concerning accidents and safety compliance. Our lawyers also defend personal injury claims, including railroad workers' claims pursuant to the Federal Employers Liability Act.
