PI / Medical Malpractice Section Meeting + CLE

Grade Crossing Litigation


(This Event will be Rescheduled at a Later Time)

"Grade crossing litigation" arises after a collision between a train (or some other kind of on-track railroad equipment) and a vehicle at a highway-railroad grade crossing. Grade crossing litigation is unique and carries with it interesting issues of fact investigation, discovery, and legal implication. This presentation will address the nature of grade crossing litigation, the railroad's duty at crossings, the motorist's duty at crossings, and preemption issues.
