    Stay safe: night journey on the London Underground


    When you go on a journey on the London Underground, you expect things to be a little busy. Battling your way onto the Tube isn’’t an uncommon occurrence. Yet, with such hustle and bustle comes risk of injury, with slips, trips and falls at the top of that list. With a little vigilance and due care, you can minimise the risk of injury during your journey on the London Underground.

    Staying safe on your journey on the London Underground

    A journey on the London Underground at night presents a greater number of risks to travellers.

    • While many of the main Tube stations are well lit, some are not as well serviced as others. This can lead to trips and falls during your journey. Navigate the tube system with care.
    • Many passengers choose to take a journey on the London Underground late at night, rather than driving, especially after consuming alcohol. While this is a sensible choice, you need to be particularly careful after drinking. Many Tube accidents at night are alcohol-related.
    • Where possible, travel with friends on your journey on the London Underground.
    • You should remain vigilant at all times. Be aware of any suspicious activity and packages, including suspect travel luggage. Report any suspicious items to a member of staff.
    • If you drop something important onto the train track, do not attempt to retrieve it. Go to a Help Point.

    Claiming compensation for accidents on the Underground

    London Underground Limited (LUL), a subsidiary of Transport for London, is responsible for your health and safety when you take a journey on the London Underground.

    If you have suffered an injury due to an accident or incident on the Tube through no fault of your own, LUL can be held liable for the harm and distress you have been made to endure. This is because they have failed in their legal duty of care to you, a passenger.

    Of course, all public accidents are unique. Your trip may simply have been human error, for example. With that in mind, at Accident Advice Helpline, we offer a free initial consultation to all victims of personal injury.
