    How to claim train passenger injury compensation


    Accidents on trains don’t happen that often, thankfully. The strict health and safety measures applied to the railways mean the odds of an accident occurring can be very long. However, we have all read stories about train accidents that have happened and have changed the lives of some of those on board.

    In other cases people can potentially be injured if they are hurt while getting on or off a train. For example if the doors close too soon and someone’s coat is caught in them while they are leaving the train, they could potentially be dragged along the platform. Thankfully this is a rarity – again, because of the safety measures in place to prevent this kind of thing.

    Could other more minor accidents result in train passenger injury compensation?

    Any accident you have on a train should be looked at to see if it warrants train passenger injury compensation being paid out. For example, you might be hurt simply by walking along an aisle in a train and slipping over on a spillage that the cleaners didn’t clean up in good time. There is little space to fall over on a train, and that can potentially lead to an awkward fall in a difficult area.

    All kinds of injuries might happen on a train in circumstances like these. Broken fingers, twisted ankles and even cuts and bruises could occur. Obviously if you have an accident while getting off a train this could be far more serious, and lead to life-changing injuries.

    Could you have a chance to claim any compensation?

    Train passenger injury compensation is only paid in circumstances where it can be proven that the train company, driver or staff are somehow at fault. As you might suspect, this can be difficult to assess. This is one of the main reasons why it is recommended that you get proper no-obligation legal advice if you ever suffer any kind of accident on a train.
