    Can I claim for an accident at a level crossing?


    Can I claim for an accident at a level crossing?

    Sometimes there are accidents on the railways which mean that you might have to ask us the question “Can I claim for an accident at a level crossing?’ The answer to this question might well be yes – if the accident at a level crossing was not your fault, then you may be able to make a personal injury claim for compensation.

    Level crossings are often dangerous places. Some of them are unmanned, and members of the public rely on things like indicator lights working well and properly functioning gates in order to be safe. But with so many level crossings in the country, there are bound to be some that are not in good working order, and this can lead to accidents. Many people have been killed on level crossings, so health and safety is paramount.
