BatesCarey Leads Railroad Liability Roundtable


BatesCarey’s David J. Buishas moderated a panel of railroad industry professionals at the 26th Annual Railroad Liability Seminar in Essex, Vermont on July 10-12, 2019.  The Panel offered a unique perspective on the state of the transportation market by analyzing both recurrent and emerging issues concerning policy placement, underwriting, and claims trends on toxic inhalation exposures, auto liability, trackage rights and shared use agreements, cyber security, and marijuana legalization.  

Buishas is part of BatesCarey’s railroad and transportation practice group, which is regularly sought out for its expertise in representing both railroads and their insurers in a broad spectrum of cases, often where clients face multi-million dollar exposures, including:  derailments and collisions resulting in deaths, injuries and evacuations; coordination of the defense of mass tort claims; wildfire losses; FELA preemption; and the defense of personal injury claims arising out of transportation accidents. 

Other members of BatesCarey’s transportation practice group who attended and contributed to the 2019 Railroad Liability Conference include Matthew M. Murphy, David M. Alt, Joseph P. Pozen, and Andrew S. Chestnut.
