SunRail Accident Lawyer

Although the SunRail can be a convenient form of transportation for those in the Greater Orlando region, it has had a reputation of high train accident activity. At Farah & Farah, we understand the serious danger a SunRail accident can pose – and that, often, it’s not your fault that you suffered an accident.

Who is Liable and How do I Get Compensated?

Liability in SunRail accidents can often be difficult to determine due to the number of variables involved.

  • The train engineer may be liable for failing to stop in time.
  • Any railroad workers may be liable for improperly maintained tracks.
  • The Florida Department of Transportation may be liable for safety and warning systems that may have failed to engage.
  • Any drivers of involved motor vehicles may be liable for errors in driving.

Even if you were partly at fault for the accident, you may still be eligible for compensation thanks to Florida’s liability laws. Florida is a “pure comparative fault” state: if both parties shared a portion of the fault for the accident, you may still be entitled to a percentage of damages. For example, if SunRail is found to be 60% at fault, you are entitled to 60% of the damages.

Proving this requires a great deal of evidence gathering and case-building – something that Farah & Farah can help with.

SunRail Background and Statistics

Unfortunately, through its lifetime, the SunRail has had a reputation for being dangerous. The longest period the railroad has gone without an accident has been 206 days. A recent state report found that it has the highest average annual casualty rate of all commuter rails in the U.S. 2017 was the deadliest year with 6 fatalities due to SunRail accidents.
