It has probably never crossed your mind that you could end up having an accident on public transport, but across the country, dozens of people are injured in public transport accidents every day. Have you thought about how you could become involved in a train accident, for example? These days, trains tend to be overcrowded, which is not necessarily safe in the event something untoward happens and the train has to stop suddenly.
How you could become involved in a train accident
The obvious examples of how you could become involved in a train accident include the train leaving the tracks because it has hit an obstacle, such as a car, or something that has fallen onto the railway line, or the train may collide with another train. In the worst case scenario, it is not unheard of for there to be fatalities, but at the other end of the scale, many people suffer cuts and bruises in such accidents, and they are entitled to make a claim as much as anyone more severely injured.
You can also become involved in an accident on a train or on the platform of a railway station of course. It is not unheard of for people to suffer slips, trips and falls – especially where baggage is not secured properly, or the platform on the station is wet or greasy. There are all manner of instances where you might get your fingers trapped in a door, or slip under the train, or you may even be the unlucky person who suffers food poisoning from a sandwich served from the buffet.
