    Injuries you could sustain on a train


    If you’ve been injured in an accident on a train, you’ll know it’s no laughing matter. You don’t need to be involved in a train crash to be injured – you could sustain injuries on a busy commuter train, trip whilst getting on or off the train or even be injured by faulty doors, seats or other objects on the train itself. If you’ve been hurt and somebody else is to blame, it’s a good idea to start thinking about making a claim for personal injury compensation, as soon as you have recovered from your injuries. Accident Advice Helpline’s personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee basis, so you don’t need to worry about affording expensive legal fees upfront.

    What injuries have you suffered?

    Injuries you could sustain on a train could range from cuts and bruises to serious, life-changing injuries. It all depends on the type of accident you’re involved in. For example, you could suffer a serious head injury or broken bones after a collision which was caused by a negligent train driver. Or you could break your ankle or sprain your wrist after tripping on a damaged train step or slipping on a wet floor in one of the train carriages. Faulty, jagged seat edges could cause lacerations to passengers, whilst a door closing on you accidentally could cause serious arm injuries.

    In all these examples, the train company could be held liable for your injuries, and you could find yourself eligible to claim personal injury compensation. You won’t just be compensated for your injuries though – you could claim compensation for loss of earnings and any expenses you’ve incurred after your accident, such as the cost of prescription medication.

    Does claiming involve court?

    Don’t put off making a claim for personal injury compensation if you’ve been injured in an accident on a train. Firstly, there’s a three-year time limit in place to make a personal injury claim, so wait around too long and you could miss out. Secondly, there’s no need to lose sleep over the thought of going to court with your claim. Most personal injury claims can be processed over the phone, so court is unlikely.
