Injured In An Accident Involving A Train That Wasn’t Your Fault? The Experienced Orlando Train Accident Lawyers At The Florida Law Group Can Fight For Justice & Maximum Monetary Compensation!
Many people think that taking the train is safer than driving, but Florida is a hotspot for railroad accidents. According to the Federal Railroad Administration, Florida logged a five-year average of 2.84 “incidents per grade crossing” compared to the national average of 1.51. There have been 57 deaths involving train collisions in the same 5 years. Brightline, a rail company which averages about 1 death for every 35,000 of trains traveled (3 times worse than the next major railroad), is nearing the completion of an extension that will connect West Palm Beach and Orlando, expected to begin service in 2022; plans are also in place to connect Orlando to Tampa. Other rail companies, like Amtrak and SunRail (SunRail has the second worst death rate of 1 per every 108,000 train miles) are already running in Orlando.
While most of the time, train accidents are not the fault of the conductor or train company, occasionally their negligence will lead to a collision. If you have been hurt in a train crash in or near Orlando that wasn’t your fault – maybe the barriers or warning lights were defective, for example, or the train conductor was intoxicated or distracted – you deserve to recieve full monetary compensation. However, there are laws in place that protect the railroad industry, and proving negligence can be extremely difficult. Train companies and insurance companies are rarely willing to pay out claims to injured train accident victims. That’s why you need to enlist the help of our skilled Orlando train accident lawyers! We will advocate for you to recieve maximum damages for your injuries. Call today to schedule your free consultation and learn more about your legal rights!
Types Of Damages Our Orlando Train Accident Lawyers May Be Able To Win In A Settlement:
Every train accident case is different. How much you can recover in damages depends on many different factors, such as who is liable for the crash, the percentage of fault you shared for the crash (if any – even if you were partially at fault, though, you still may be able to recover damages), how severe your injuries were, how much evidence exists to support your claim, how many other people (if any) were injured in the same incident (as federal law caps recovery at $200 million per incident, no matter how many victims were injured), and more. Our knowledgeable Orlando train accident lawyers can help you understand what your injuries are truly worth and fight to ensure that you are paid fairly for all of the costs you incurred in the accident! Here are the three most common categories of damages we recover for train accident victims:
- (1) the costs of medical bills (for ambulatory or air transport, X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, surgeries, hospitalization, blood work, medical devices, medications, physical therapy, chiropractic care, copays, deductibles, counseling, etc.)
- (2) lost wages (for time you had to take off work without pay in order to heal from the injuries suffered in the accident, including any overtime pay you would otherwise have earned)
- (3) pain and suffering (for the mental and physical trauma associated with the accident – this amount can be quantified!)
