    Compensation for London Underground accidents


    Every day thousands upon thousands of people use the London Underground to get across London and to some of its outlying areas as well. Workers use it to reach their offices and workplaces and to return home again, while tourists use it to reach some of the iconic sights the capital has to offer. There are many other situations where the Underground comes in rather useful as well, since it offers a fast and efficient service.

    While most people do indeed reach their destinations without problems, some are unfortunate to suffer London Underground accidents. Such accidents are incredibly rare, it should be noted, but there are cases where people are involved in an accident, often minor in nature. Accident Advice Helpline has spoken with a variety of people who have suffered such accidents and wish to have advice about their position.

    How might London Underground accidents occur?

    When you think of an accident on the Tube network your mind probably immediately goes to something major in nature. For instance you might think about someone falling under a train as it comes into the platform, or someone falling down an escalator. While these can potentially occur the vast majority of accidents that do happen are far more minor in nature.

    Some compensation claims for example have been lodged as a result of negligence in terms of failing to clear up a spillage of some kind. This could be something as simple as a drink that has been spilt by a passenger that the cleaners have failed to clean up. If no warning signs were in place alerting people to the spillage prior to it being cleaned, there could be the case for a compensation claim to be made.

    Avoiding accidents and getting to your destination safely

    It is imperative that everyone takes care when using the Underground. Of course this is the case for the vast majority of people. However, even when you are careful there could be the potential for something to go wrong. When this is the case you could potentially be injured through no fault of your own. Discovering if negligence was to blame is a big step in the direction of considering a compensation claim.
