Railroad Crossing Litigation

There are more than 200,000 railroad grade crossings in the United States.  Numerous kinds of claims can arise at grade crossings in which people are killed or injured, or property is damaged.  Accidents include trains striking cars or trucks, derailments, and bicycles or pedestrians encountering dangerous conditions on the tracks or crossing.

HBC attorneys have handled all manner of railroad grade crossing claims involving some of the largest rail carriers.  HBC lawyers obtained a verdict against Burlington Northern in Boulder County for $23 million, and against Union Pacific in Douglas County for $16 million.  HBC’s experience makes the difference in high-stakes cases.
