    How to claim railway station accident compensation


    Travelling by rail is a popular way of getting around in the UK, whether you are going cross-country or a short distance. Many people use trains to commute to work, or to travel for recreational purposes. Train travel is relatively safe but accidents can occur while on the train or at the platform or railway station.

    Taking care at train stations

    Waiting for a train doesn’t seem like something that could end up in injury and most of the time it doesn’t. But there are things that can make it more likely that an accident will occur. It’s important to take care when waiting for a train; most of us are aware of the dangers of standing too close to the edge of the platform and we must behave responsibly and safely to keep ourselves out of danger. Sometimes though, we might find ourselves injured because of something that isn’t our fault and then we may want to consider railway station accident compensation.

    Safety at railway stations

    The dangers involved with fast moving trains mean that there are a lot of health and safety concerns in railway stations. Operators of railway stations should be very safety conscious and aware of the importance of safety precautions to protect their visitors and staff. Some of the common railway station accidents that can happen are slipping and tripping on the platform or stairs at the station and falling onto the track. If the platforms are not kept clear and tidy then things such as rubbish or spills can cause people to fall over and sustain injuries.

    If people fall onto the track it can be very dangerous and there is a risk of serious injury that may be fatal. The train station operators must ensure that the railway station is safe and secure for all those who use it. If they fail to carry out their duty of care to visitors and staff their negligence may cause accidents and railway station accident compensation can be claimed.

    If you are injured at a railway station because of the negligence of station operator or staff you may be able to claim compensation. It is important to report your incident as soon as possible. Accident Advice Helpline can offer you advice and work to get the best compensation result for you. We are here to talk to and you can call us today on 0800 689 0500 to discuss your case.
