If you or someone you love sustained serious or life-threatening injuries in an accident involving a train, The Florida Law Group’s aggressive attorneys will fight for the justice – and the monetary damages – you deserve.
Our Lakeland train accident injury lawyers have a well-deserved reputation as the top choice for local personal injury representation
Florida has one of the highest rates of railroad crossing collisions in the entire nation. From 2014 to 2018, there were 500 train accidents reported, with over 40% of those resulting in either severe injuries or fatalities. Most recently, in April of 2021, a young mother and her 4 month-old infant were killed in Lakeland after a train struck their car while they were crossing the tracks unsafely. There are many instances where victims contribute to train accidents occurring, but in other cases, the train company or train operator may have been the cause of the crash. In either situation, people on the train or people outside of it may suffer injuries that were no fault of their own and that can change their lives forever; it is in these situations that victims need to call our Lakeland train accident injury lawyers in order to recover maximum compensation.

Trains are massive vehicles; any time they collide with another vehicle, catastrophic injuries often result. If you are injured in a train accident, you may need to pay for ambulatory transport or an airlift to the emergency room, imaging tests like CT scans and X-rays, blood work, multiple surgeries, physical therapy, rehabilitation, chiropractic care, medical devices, prosthetics, medications, deductibles, copays, and more. Some injuries may never heal, requiring lifelong care or in-home assistance. You may have to take months off of work to recover, without pay, and you may not be able to enjoy the same activities or level of independence that you did before. The cost of treatment following a train accident could easily be tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars. Even if you have great insurance, insurance companies will often seek to deny or devalue your claim because it protects their financial interests. Your life is valuable, and your injuries are expensive – you deserve to be fully and fairly compensated for what you have endured, which is why you need skilled attorneys on your side who will advocate for you.
Train companies and operators passing through Lakeland have a legal responsibility to keep their passengers and the motorists in their path safe, and drivers have a legal responsibility to obey the laws designed to help avoid these accidents. When one party violates their duty of care, that is called negligence, and they deserve to be held accountable for the hurt they have caused! The Florida Law Group’s Lakeland train accident injury lawyers have recovered over $1 billion dollars for our clients. We are not afraid of going to trial if that’s what it takes for you to be awarded damages, and we are not intimidated by train companies’ legal teams. Our goal is to never let you settle for a low offer!
