If you or your loved one has been injured in a railroad accident, please contact our office today to speak with a Fort Lauderdale accident attorney about your case.
Railroad workers, engineers, and station workers are at just as much risk of a railroad accident as passengers. A railroad accident could occur for any number of reasons such as derailment, negligent driving on the part of the train conductor, a collision with a vehicle, negligent train security, mechanical failure, degraded train tracks, and other sorts of collisions.
These accidents can cause broken bones, eye injuries, amputations, paralysis, and a host of other medical problems that could possibly leave a victim permanently disabled.
If a train is transporting just one car filled with hazardous chemical materials, the entire community where the railroad accident occurred could be affected. Chemicals can leak into water supplies, cause fires, and a number of other accidents. The emergency responders to these accidents are exposed these hazardous materials which could lead to serious medical problems as the years progress.
One of our Fort Lauderdale accident lawyers can assist any passenger, railroad worker, train worker, or injured bystander file claims and lawsuits to recover the compensation due to them. If you were involved in a train accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other relevant expense.
