Train Accidents & Brightline Accidents


The railway is quickly becoming one of the most preferred ways of traveling here in Florida. The Brightline train, a high-speed rail system, debuted here in Florida in January 2018. It is currently servicing Fort Lauderdale to West Palm Beach, however the complete project will span from Miami to Orlando. The Brightline train has a top speed of over 100 mph and is one the fastest trains in the US. However, with such speed comes great risk-including derailment and collisions with both vehicles and pedestrians. In fact, the Brightline train was involved in several accidents within just months of its debut.

The most common injuries from these train accidents and derailments are amputation and death.

If you or a loved one has been involved in an train accident, it is important that you seek medical treatment immediately. Your health is your and our number one priority. Oftentimes, injuries that result from an train accident do not manifest until days later. As such, seeking medical treatment immediately after an accident, even if you feel as though you are not injured, is a good idea. The following list are some actions you may want to take after an accident:

  • Call 911 in the event that anyone involved in the accident is in need of medical attention.
  • Use your cell phone to take pictures of the accident scene, the vehicles involved in the accident, and any visible injuries that you have sustained.
  • Write down as much information as you can about the involved vehicles and drivers in the accident. Most importantly, remember to take down the involved drivers contact, insurance and license plate information.
  • Seek medical treatment and be honest with your doctors about how you feel and the symptoms that you may have.
  • Do not speak with anyone about the train accident, except your doctors.
  • Call the attorneys of Koch Parafinczuk Wolf Susen for a free consultation.
