You are normally well looked after and perfectly safe when travelling on Britain’s railway network. Despite headlines about delays and overcrowded trains, most services run on time and offer a relatively affordable and comfortable form of travel. Despite constant improvements in safety, accidents, although rare, do unfortunately happen from time to time. If you have been involved in an incident that has resulted in you suffering personal injury while travelling on a train, we suggest you contact us at Accident Advice Helpline to see if you have grounds for instigating a train accident claim.
What do I do to start my claim?
Call us and one of our expert advisers should be able to tell you within minutes if you have a potential legal right to claim for compensation. Your adviser will ask if you were injured in the last three years, if the accident or injury was your fault, if you received medical attention because of it and where you were injured. Alternatively, you might prefer to try our free 30-second online test to check if you have a possible claim for compensation.
Can you tell me more about Accident Advice Helpline?
Accident Advice Helpline was set up in 2000 to look after the rights of accident victims who may not have the personal finances to start a claim for compensation. We do not make a charge for initiating the claims process, which means you do not have to worry about having to pay for upfront legal costs.
What happens first?
When you first contact us, one of our expert advisers will discuss the incident with you and tell you if your claim for compensation is likely to be successful. If so, they will put you in touch with one of our team of expert solicitors, each of whom is trained to deal with accidents like the one you have suffered. Wherever possible he or she will attempt to settle your claim out of court, though if the level of compensation offered is unsatisfactory you may be advised to take your case further.
What will it cost to make a claim?
Checking if you have a valid claim for compensation is free of charge when you contact Accident Advice Helpline. If you proceed with your claim, we will handle it on a no win no fee* basis, which means that if we don’t win your case, you won’t owe us a penny. We are here to take away all the hassle of claiming the compensation you are entitled to, while ensuring you have no worries regarding the legal costs. You really have nothing to lose, so give us a call on 0800 689 0500 now.
