Property Damage and Environmental Litigation

At Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC, we represent railroads and transportation sector clients in environmental and property damage matters across the country. Railroads and other institutional land owners have particular exposures and responsibilities due to their operations and property holdings. Often times, these issues result from historical operations associated with tenants or prior owners. Our attorneys have significant experience representing railroads and transportation clients in a wide variety of environmental actions, including cost recovery actions, contribution actions, nuisance and property damage litigation, natural resource damages litigation, and many other matters relating to contamination and impaired real property. We also use our significant environmental experience to assist our clients with environmental regulatory matters and enforcement actions at the local, state and federal level. From representing railroads in large Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) litigation to investigating and pursuing contribution for legacy contaminated sites from prior owners, operators and tenants, our attorneys handle the full spectrum of environmental and property damage litigation for our railroad and transportation clients.
