A few years ago I took a railroad crossing case to the Kentucky Supreme Court. Calhoun v. CSX Transportation, 331 S.W.3d 236 (Ky. 2011) I get calls from other lawyers every once in a while asking for advice on handling these very complex cases. If you are a Kentucky attorney handling a railroad crossing case, you should probably read this opinion- especially if your claim involves vegetation at the crossing or other visual obstructions. I am always glad to discuss the case and the insights into the railroad industry and railroad litigation I gleaned from it.
