FELA Defense

Within its general litigation and employment practice groups, BKBH represents railroads in actions brought by their employees under the Federal Employment Liability Act. BKBH has been doing FELA defense work since the early 1990’s and has defended cases for multiple railroads. BKBH has literally handled hundreds of lawsuits filed in Montana filed by railroad emloyees working all across the United States – including all aspects of litigation, up to and through trial and appeal- all the while navigating the unique issues presented by cases brought under the FELA. Further, while defending the FELA claims that have already matured into lawsuits that must be litigated here in Montana, the FELA practice group at BKBH has worked with BKBH governmental affairs practice group on behalf of our railroad clients.
