Whenever you travel on the London Underground your main thought is probably where you need to get to. If you are familiar with the network you will no doubt know the line you need and the stop you need to get off at. However, there could be cases where you will be unfamiliar with your surroundings and thus you will want to consider looking at a map before you travel.
In any case the last thing you would expect would be to suffer injuries on the London Underground. This is a rare occurrence but of course as with any transport network it can happen from time to time. There have been cases dealt with by companies including Accident Advice Helpline that have resulted in a compensation claim being made, for example.
How might someone sustain injuries on the London Underground?
There could be many potential hazards that could result in injuries occurring to one or more people. For example if a platform was allowed to become overcrowded (a very unlikely proposition) someone could be pushed onto the tracks by accident. It might also be possible for someone to get a limb stuck in a door, although the trains will not move off when the doors are not closed properly.
Others might simply receive minor injuries from slipping or tripping in some part of the station. These types of incidents can be dealt with more properly by contacting a professional injury compensation lawyer if compensation is found to be a possibility.
This is very important to be aware of. Very few people, especially given the volume travelling on London Underground daily, will ever have cause to consider making a compensation claim for any injuries they might suffer while using the service. This is heartening to know regardless of how much or little you might use the service.
