Some Tube stations – particularly those in Central London – can get very busy and crowded on a daily basis, particularly during the rush hour in the morning and during the evening. However, there is the potential for Tube station injuries to occur at any time if the circumstances make it possible to happen.
You might wonder what Tube station injuries might occur in these circumstances. It depends what the situation is and how a person is injured. For example it might be something as serious as being pushed underneath a train while crowds of people are trying to board it. On the other hand it could mean spraining an ankle while walking down a flight of stairs that has not been properly maintained. Accident Advice Helpline’s team is experienced in working out whether negligence has played a part in causing an injury to occur.
From minor injuries to more serious ones
A minor injury might involve slipping on a spillage that should have been signed or cleaned up. If this was not the case and you slipped over in it, causing yourself an injury in the process, you could end up making a successful claim. On the other hand if you were pushed on an overcrowded platform and you fell underneath a train, this could potentially lead to far more serious injuries.
These cases could all potentially result in successful compensation claims being made. They are examples of course, but Accident Advice Helpline has dealt with cases that are all too real for the people who have gone through them.
