Train accident cases are complex. Depending on what or who caused the accident, the severity of the accident and the physical and property injuries included, there can be many different realms of law that must be factored in, both state and federal.

Can I Receive Compensation for a Train Collision?

A train collision at a railroad crossing is the most common type of train accident. A train collision can occur with another train, a car or truck or with a pedestrian, and no matter the specific circumstances, the results are usually catastrophic. There are so many different players and so many different laws that must be factored in. The railroad will work with their insurance companies and attorneys to minimize their liability and pay out the least amount of money as possible. That is why it is crucial that you speak with a knowledgeable train accident lawyer in Fort Lauderdale.

At Ginnis & Krathen, P.A., we have the knowledge and resources necessary to navigate through this complex area of law, whether it be a railroad employee FELA claim or a railroad injury suffered by a commuter. We will personally work with you to get you the reimbursement you deserve. We are not afraid to go up against large railroad companies and huge insurance firms to fight for you and your rights.
