If you need train accident advice following a crash or an accident on board a locomotive, our friendly team here at Accident Advice Helpline is always ready to assist you. Calling us costs nothing and you can do it at any time of day or night. We won’t pressure you to make a claim, just talk through what happened to you and explain your legal options.
Under British law, accident claims need to be made within three years unless the person injured was a child, in which case an adult can claim on their behalf, or they can claim directly between their 18th and 21st birthdays. It is only possible to make a claim if a doctor or other fully qualified medical professional has treated the injured person. We will usually be able to tell you straight away whether or not your claim is legitimate, and sometimes we will also be able to tell you how much it’s likely to be worth, helping you to decide on what course of action will suit you best.
Types of train accident
We give train accident advice and deal with a great many accident victims and know that even comparatively minor accidents can be very distressing, so if you haven’t actually been in a train crash, please don’t feel that what happened to you is insignificant. We certainly don’t think of people’s suffering in that way. Obviously some kinds of train accident are horrific, but others can still leave you with ongoing difficulties.
Common accidents we encounter include badly stored luggage falling on people, sharp edges on tables cutting people and elderly or disabled passengers who have asked to be seated near a toilet falling down if they have to walk further because it’s out of order. Others injure themselves getting on and off trains because of gaps between the train and the platform. Most accidents like this occur because the train company has not properly fulfilled its duties, so claiming is a straightforward process with a good success rate.
To give you an even better chance of success, Accident Advice Helpline can fix you up with a solicitor who is experienced in handling cases of this type. We can do this on a no win, no fee* basis so you won’t need lots of money to fund your case. If you win compensation, you will always be able to keep most of it. This puts justice within everybody’s reach.
We realise that, after an accident like this, the last thing you will want to deal with is more travel. We can arrange for you to deal with your solicitor over the phone so that this won’t be a worry. In some cases, we are able to negotiate good compensation settlements without our clients even needing to go to court.
Claiming compensation doesn’t need to be difficult. We keep it simple so that you can put the process behind you as soon as possible, forget about the accident and get on with your life. To discuss your claim with a member of our expert team dial 0800 689 0500 now.
