When you consider the many people who travel on London’s Tube service every day, it is quite impressive that so few of them will end their journey suffering from an injury of some kind. The entire service is run to the highest of standards, while staff are trained to deal with and prevent all kinds of potential problems. As such there is every chance you will end up completing every journey you ever make on the network without any problems or concerns at all.
Of course there is a slim potential for things to occasionally potentially go wrong. If you have ever been injured on the Tube network, you should know that Accident Advice Helpline does have experience of speaking with injured Tube passengers who wish to know more about making a potential claim.
What can go wrong on the network?
There are exceptionally safe stations and lines in use on the network every day. However, it is possible for potential hazards to lead to an accident if the right (or in this case wrong) circumstances are in place. For example if a platform is allowed to become overcrowded there is the potential for an accident to occur. The same would be true if other areas such as escalators were to become overcrowded. Staff are trained to deal with such situations so they do not occur.
When you think of accidents on the network you may automatically think of those rare occurrences that hit the news headlines, when people are seriously injured. However, there is the potential to simply slip, trip or fall while using the Tube as well. Some injured Tube passengers end up with injuries from these types of accidents, which may be worth contacting Accident Advice Helpline about.
Prevention is better than dealing with the outcome
Clearly, preventing accidents from happening in the first place is the key thing to do. Thankfully all London Underground staff are well-trained in doing their jobs and the network is an incredibly safe one to use on a daily basis. There are situations where things can potentially go wrong but they are very rare indeed.
