Getting the best railroad conductor injury advice is important if you are likely to need to make a compensation claim. The personal injury specialists at Accident Advice Helpline are the top legal firm you need to contact if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault.
An injury at work
Trains are mostly a very safe form of transport but, as with all vehicles, accidents can happen on or around trains.
As a railroad conductor you are used to walking around a moving train, but an unexpected hazard such as loose carpet could cause you to trip, possibly resulting in a sprain, broken bone or a head or back injury.
A train crash or derailment caused by faulty signals or malfunctioning points could result in a life-changing injury and can even prove fatal. Even away from the train there are hazards. Poorly maintained stations and slippery platforms can result in a trip or a fall.
If it can be proved that your injury should have been avoided through better maintenance, the train or track company may be considered negligent.
