Practice Areas

 

At Anderson, Rasor & Partners, LLP, our railroad practice focuses on all the legal needs of the railroad industry, including direct representation of railroads, railroad insurers and excess insurers, as well as national supervision of mass tort claims. We pride ourselves on working side by side with in-house counsel and claims personnel to successfully defend our clients before federal and state courts, in addition to federal and state agencies.  

The breadth of our knowledge and experience is exemplified by our numerous, diverse trial activities; in a single year, the Anderson, Rasor & Partners, LLP, Railroad Practice tried cases ranging from an FELA occupational claim to a civil rights claim involving excessive force, and from a false arrest case to a grade crossing accident resulting in multiple deaths and serious injuries to train passengers.

We have extensive experience in defending traumatic and occupational claims brought under the FELA, FRSA retaliation claims, property damage claims arising from derailments, civil rights violations, premises liability, trespasser accidents, and catastrophic passenger injury. Additionally, we defend grade crossing accidents, providing immediate, on-site investigation within hours of the accident. Our practice also offers claims evaluation and coverage opinions,  contract analysis, management of complex accidents involving hundreds of litigants, and appellate representation.
