Florida Railroad Accidents Result In Debilitating Injuries And Deaths

Just like the commercial trucking industry, America relies on our railroads to provide an affordable way to transport goods and people from one end of the country to the other. However, like commercial trucks, trains are extremely large, heavy vehicles that cause catastrophic injuries in a crash.

Federal safety measures have worked to reduce collisions between trains and motor vehicles. In 1972, roughly 12,000 collisions occurred involving trains and motor vehicles. By 2014, that number has been reduced by about 81% to 2,286 collisions. In addition to collisions between trains and motor vehicles, Florida railroad accidents also involve pedestrians, passengers, and railroad workers.

When Florida railroad accidents occur, the devastating injuries often result in life-altering conditions that radically change the victim and the victim’s family forever. In addition to the physical pain and emotional suffering, Florida railroad accidents victims and their families face enormous medical costs, physical therapy, property damage, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, funeral costs, and other economic losses. Someone must be held responsible and compensate victims for these damages.
