    Staying safe on the underground in Madrid


    The underground in Madrid is one of the easiest and fastest ways to get around Spain’s iconic capital city. If you’re off to Madrid this summer, why not take heed of these top tips to help you avoid slips, trips and falls, accidents and injuries when using the underground?

    Plan your route

    Planning your route will save you time and prevent you from becoming panicked if you can’t work out where the maps are, you’re not sure which line you need to use or you’re worried about asking for advice because your Spanish is limited. Use the Internet to plan your journey or leave yourself time to look at the map when you first get to the station. You could also use guidebooks to help you find out which stations are best for visiting the major sights.

    Give yourself time

    Nothing is worse than hurrying through a crowded station in a bid to catch a train or tube. If you’re planning a journey, give yourself plenty of time, take your time and avoid rushing. Hurrying in stations is likely to end up in slip, trip and fall injuries, such as strains, sprains and broken bones. If a train door is closing, don’t attempt to lunge for the door in desperate hope that you’ll make it through a tiny gap; stand well clear of the platform edge and wait for the next train.

    Wear suitable footwear

    Underground stations tend to be busy, especially at peak commuter times and there are usually stairs or escalators to navigate, so wearing a comfortable pair of flat shoes comes highly recommended. If you’re tottering around in high heels or you’ve got flip-flops on, which keep slipping off your feet, you’re more likely to suffer public place injuries.

    Claiming for an accident in an underground station

    If you have been involved in an accident in a public place, such as an underground station, and you have proof that you were not to blame, Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim no win, no fee* public liability compensation. If the accident happened abroad, you may have a claim for travel accident compensation.
