Orlando Train Accident Attorney

If you’re a commuter who uses one of the Orlando area rail systems every day, you’re doing your part for a cleaner, less congested Central Florida. Whether it’s a daily commuter line or the new high-speed rail up and down the coast, it’s easier than driving (especially if there’s WiFi available.)

Rail is still a popular form of public or cargo transport, for in-state trips or coast to coast. Trains may carry anything from food and medical supplies to extremely hazardous materials.

Train accidents happen about every hour and a half all over the US, despite safety precautions and warning signs. In 2017, there were nearly 12,000 rail accidents in the US, including 864 fatalities. Vehicular accidents are most often caused by freight trains at designated railroad crossings.

When most people think of a personal injury case, car accidents come to mind; yet people can get hurt on a train whether they are riding it or are crossing a railroad. Passenger vehicle drivers are also at risk of becoming involved in a train accident. If you’ve been involved in a crash, a train accident attorney can help you recover.  

Top Reasons for Train Accidents in Orlando

A train accident can happen for any number of reasons, including:

  • Operator (human) error
  • Unnecessary high speed
  • Track problems
  • Mechanical issues on train
  • Railroad crossguard gates (broken or missing)
  • Driver distraction (both auto and train)

car damaged by oncoming train

Just like a car crash, a train accident can leave you with serious and debilitating injuries, pain, and other setbacks that make life difficult. Contacting a train accident lawyer can help you move forward and get back to living your life.

 

You Can Recover Damages in a Train Accident in Orlando

Much like a car accident, a train accident is a personal injury case involving someone else’s negligence.

If you’ve been involved in a train accident, you may be able to recover damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Auto repair expenses (if applicable)
  • Death and disfigurement (for families, including funeral expenses, loss of companionship, suffering)
