Even if you adhere to all of the safety guidelines, it is easier than you think to be injured at a level crossing, and this may result in a level crossing accident claim. At level crossings, trains travel extremely close both to pedestrians and to road vehicles so there is capacity for serious injury if they are not properly maintained and you can seek a claim if you feel that you have been injured as a result of negligence. Negligence may include broken signals, a lack of signage or damaged barriers. A claim for compensation can relate either to vehicle damage or to personal injury because of a poorly-maintained level crossing. It cannot, however, relate to accidents caused by personal negligence such as your failure to adhere to clear warnings and safety signals.

Why should I make a claim?
At Accident Advice Helpline we understand that it takes time to recover from a physical or psychological trauma and that, sometimes, it may even be necessary to take time off work. If this is the case, why should you lose earnings, especially if the accident wasn’t your fault? We will take loss of earnings, material damage and medical bills into account when processing your claim.
How do I make a claim?
Our consultation process is very straightforward. It involves just six short questions that are used to evaluate the eligibility of your claim. Once these questions have been covered you will receive an instant answer – if you are not eligible for compensation, our advisors will let you know.
If you are given the go-ahead to proceed, we will need to record the details of the level crossing accident, and to evaluate any evidence that you might wish to use to support your claim. You will be paired with one of our specialist solicitors who will walk you through the paperwork and be there to answer any questions that you might have about the legal process.
If necessary, a friend or family member can assist you with the claim filing process. The path towards compensation can be confusing at times, particularly if you do not have a legal background, so we want to make things as easy as possible. The road to recovery can be painful and, if you are suffering after an accident that wasn’t your fault, you deserve to be compensated.
