Transportation Litigation

Since its founding, MGS has been a leader in the area of transportation litigation.  We represent both Class I and smaller railroads in grade crossing and other accidents - including accidents with multiple fatalities and catastrophic injuries - as well as in employee injury suits brought under the Federal Employers' Liability Act, where the amount of damages is not capped and is set by a jury. Furthermore, we represent railroads in commercial and real property cases and in actions alleging violation of the Federal Railroad Safety Act. MGS similarly defends trucking companies and other transportation industry clients in personal injury and wrongful death cases, and we are experienced in Carmack Amendment litigation and maritime claims as well.
