Member, Law Section
Advances in technology, operating practices, and capital improvements have turned today's railroad into a safer, more efficient, and modern operation. But despite these recent advances, or perhaps because of them, plaintiffs' attorneys continue to come up with new and creative theories for suing railroads, some more successful than others. This article will discuss applicable cases and trends involving one particular claim that is making the rounds - noise nuisances.
DMG continues to follow developments in this evolving area. Please contact Matthew J. Hammer at 312.422.5874 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
