The introduction of the Brightline system to Florida in 2018 has certainly made getting around the state easier. However, accidents involving trains seem to occur with greater-than-average frequency. This could be due to negligence. Thus, if you’re ever injured in a Miami train accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Meet with a Miami train accident lawyer at Elstein Legal to discuss your options.
What You Need to Know about Miami Train Accidents
Train accidents can cause injury to passengers, employees, train operators, and pedestrians. Types of train accidents include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Trains striking pedestrians.
- Slip and fall accidents inside trains.
- Accidents resulting from improper boarding procedures.
Those are merely a few examples. Unfortunately, while Brightline has brought convenience to Florida, the frequency of accidents involving trains is so great that Brightline is now the deadliest railroad in the nation.
Even if a victim involved in a Miami train accident lives, they have a good chance of being left with serious injuries. These injuries require costly medical treatment, can keep a victim from working, and can even have a permanent impact on their quality of life. That’s why you deserve to be compensated accordingly if you’re hurt in a Miami train accident. A train accident law firm in Miami can help.
Hiring an Attorney
There are many reasons to hire a personal injury lawyer in Miami when seeking compensation after a train accident. Train accident cases are complicated, and it can be difficult to determine who is actually responsible for compensating you if you don’t have the resources necessary to conduct an investigation.
For example, an accident that might seem to be the result of operator negligence may in fact be the result of negligence on the part of those who designed or manufactured the train. Or, in an accident involving a train striking a pedestrian, the negligent party may be an agency that failed to install train crossing signs at the site of the accident. You need to leverage the resources of a personal injury law firm in Miami to ensure you’re seeking compensation from the correct party.
You also need to collect evidence proving their negligence caused the accident, calculate how much compensation you’re owed, and negotiate with an insurance company to demonstrate why the amount of compensation you’re seeking is a fair and appropriate payout. You may even need to go to court if you can’t reach a settlement. These are all tasks a Miami train accident attorney is qualified to handle on your behalf.
