Railway staff working on train tracks put themselves at risk every day to help keep our transport networks ticking over. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have a great deal of experience when it comes to helping people get compensation for injuries that they have sustained whilst working on the railways, and we always do everything in our power to bring our clients the best outcome we possibly can. Let’s take a look at some of the most common injuries sustained by railway workers working on train tracks.
Do you require compensation?
Many railway staff have experienced slips, trips, falls, electric shocks, fractures, lesions, broken bones and more whilst working on the railways. The nature of the railways, with their fast trains and various other hazards, means that the possibility of sustaining an injury whilst working on them is high. If you have had an injury whilst working on train tracks and think it was caused by someone else’s negligence, we may be able to help you bring them to account and get the compensation that’s rightfully yours. Some people who worked on the railways in the past have experienced industrial illnesses related to their work many years later. Although we can normally go back three years, in some circumstances we can help you claim for industrial illnesses linked to work you did a long time ago.
It’s essential that you keep hold of any evidence related to your accident and injuries you have. This evidence can come in the form of medical receipts, accident reports, photographs, witness statements and contact details and more. The compensation can help you cover all sorts of costs related to your accident, including lost earnings, medical expenses, fares for hospital visits and more. You may have required counselling because of your accident and been forced to go private. We can help you recover the cost of the sessions.
