If you or someone you love sustained serious, life-changing injuries in a railroad accident, you already know how devastating these accidents can be.

Fortunately, the Florida railroad accident lawyers at Parker Waichman LLP can help you and your family rebuild your lives. We've been representing Florida accident victims for more than 20 years, and we will fight tirelessly on your behalf to ensure you have access to the best medical care, recoup lost wages, and obtain the maximum amount of compensation the law allows.
Florida train workers looking for a railroad accident lawyer to represent them in an injury case need to find an attorney who is experienced with the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA), which allows railroad workers to recover substantial compensation for injuries resulting from negligence on the part of the railroad, its supervisors, agents, co-workers or others.
The Florida railroad accident lawyers at Parker Waichman LLP have represented many workers in FELA claims cases that involve serious injuries, including:
- Hearing loss
- Back and neck injuries
- Chemical and asbestos exposure
- Exposure to toxic solvents
- Respiratory illnesses due to inhaling diesel exhaust
- Injuries due to heavy lifting
- Shoulder injuries
- Knee injuries
- Repetitive motion disorders
- Limb Amputation
- Slip & Fall or Trip & Fall
- Traumatic brain injury
- Bone fractures
- Crushing injuries
- Other injuries from heavy machinery
Filing a successful FELA claim may enable you to recover damages for:
- Past and future pain, suffering, emotional, and psychological distress;
- Un-reimbursed past medical expenses and future medical expenses;
- Lost fringe benefits such as vacation pay, medical insurance, and railroad retirement contributions; and
- Past and future lost wages and/or impaired earning capacity.
Our Florida railroad accident attorneys will investigate the cause of your accident, and conduct a thorough review of the train's maintenance history as well as the driver's record. Parker Waichman LLP also boasts some of Florida’s toughest and most experienced litigators, so we'll be ready if we have to take your railroad accident lawsuit to trial should a fair settlement be impossible. However, please note that there are strict deadlines for filing a FELA claim. If this is not done within the appropriate time, your case will be dismissed regardless of who is at fault.
