Florida Railroad Crossing Accident Law Firm

Every year in the U.S., thousands of collisions occur at railroad crossings that are poorly marked, poorly lit, or otherwise difficult to see or navigate. The result – thousands of people are injured or even killed. Considering the locomotive engine alone can weigh more than 100 tons or even 200 tons – that's 200,000 to 400,000 pounds – it's not surprising that a railroad crossing accident can involve serious, life-altering injuries that may require years of medical care and therapy. And that's just part of the costs -- railroad crossing accidents can cause loss of wages and other damages that can devastate the victim's savings in just a short amount of time.

Major Impacts, Major Injuries

While a few railroad crossing accidents may be the fault of the automobile driver, many accidents occur as a result of the railroad company's negligence, typically from a lack of signage or lighting that make it difficult to see the train when it's approaching or when it's already in the crossing. The result is a side impact or head-on collision that occurs with a massive amount of force.

Making sure the railroad company is held accountable for your crash-related medical costs and other expenses isn't easy. Railroads have big insurance companies with skilled attorneys working hard to limit damages and deny claims. Without your own legal representation, your chances of being compensated for your losses are virtually nonexistent.
