    Are tramlines a trip hazard?


    Tramlines can be very dangerous, although they are also very convenient and allow people in various parts of the UK to get around with ease. Trams play a pivotal role in helping people reduce their carbon footprint and cutting down congestion, but sadly far too many people are still being injured by trams each year. If tramlines pose a threat, signs should be placed near them to alert people to danger. If you think tramlines are a trip hazard and have come to harm because of them and it wasn’t your fault, we may be able to help you get compensation for your injuries.

    Why people call tramlines a trip hazard

    At Accident Advice Helpline, we have been helping people get compensation for accidents related to public transport ever since we were first founded in 2000. Many people brand tramlines a trip hazard, and people can suffer cuts and bruises, broken bones and other injuries if they do trip up over them. We can help if you have been hurt because of a tramline and you weren’t warned about the dangers you were facing. Perhaps you were hurt by a damaged piece of tramline or had minor to severe injuries? Whatever the case, we may be able to assist you if you have come to harm because of a tramline and it was not your fault.

    Compensation can help you cover an array of costs related to your accident, such as lost earnings, medical fees and more. Please don’t get rid of any evidence associated with your accident like photos of your injuries and the contact details of witnesses as these could be exactly what we need to get compensation.

You can find out if you are likely to be eligible to claim by taking our 30-second test, which will also give you a rough estimate of compensation amounts.
