Railroad Accidents

When it comes to sheer injury and trauma, few types of accidents are more serious than those involving people injured by moving trains.

While any accident can have severe or even life-changing consequences, railroad accidents frequently involve injuries like:

  • Loss of limbs
  • Permanent brain damage
  • Paralysis
  • Death

These are the types of injuries that can quickly drain the financial resources of any family. If you and your family are struggling following an accident involving trains in Florida, my firm can help you determine whether you can pursue a claim against the railroad.

My legal victories in the area of railroad accidents include the case Seaboard System Railroad, Inc., v. Mells, in which my client was awarded $200,000 after I proved that the train operator could have stopped in time to avoid striking and injuring my client.

The Experience You Need To Get Fair Compensation

What makes a lawyer successful in this complex area of personal injury litigation is experience actually handling railroad accident cases, as well as a dedication to uncovering every possible kind of evidence that can help a client’s cause.

In addition to my three-plus decades of litigation experience, I take great pride in the individual attention I give to every case my firm handles. I am skilled at obtaining and analyzing even the most obscure types of evidence; in addition, my experience has helped me establish a network of experts upon whom I can call when additional analysis is required.

With this combination of experience, resources and passion for helping those injured due to railroad operator negligence, I help my clients obtain compensation for their financial losses, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Long-term care needs
  • Lost wages and inability to return to work
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
