The long term effects of being involved in a train accident may not be immediately obvious if your injuries have healed. However, for many people, the trauma of being involved in any accident, on public transport or otherwise, can be extremely debilitating.
You may have been involved in an accident on a train, or on the station platform. Perhaps you slipped, tripped or fell. Perhaps you managed to get your fingers caught in a door, or luggage fell on top of you. These are quite innocent accidents that can lead to a variety of injuries, that will vary in severity, and take some time to heal. But accidents that involve collision with other vehicles can be some of the most traumatic, and these tend to be the ones that lead to post traumatic stress disorder, or psychological problems or mental illness in the future.
The long term effects of being involved in a train accident can be invisible
If you have been involved in a train accident and you are suffering with the hidden after-effects, then you may well think that there is no real point in making a claim for compensation. This couldn’t be further from the truth, and here at Accident Advice Helpline, we would encourage you to claim, the same as anybody who has suffered physical injury. Certainly it will help if you have had a diagnosis of some kind, so do speak to your GP or other medical expert and take their opinion.
