Train engineer accidents
As someone responsible for the repair and maintenance of trains you will be familiar with tools and machinery and the risks they carry. Working on trains can lead to a range of injuries from minor cuts to amputations. Head or back injuries can also occur if you are hit by falling machinery.
If the accident was caused by the negligence of a third party you may be entitled to compensation.
It is not always possible to prove negligence. Sometimes accidents happen despite all reasonable precautions. However there should be strict safety guidelines in place whenever there is work carried out and, if these have not been followed, your employer may be considered negligent.
- Tools: You should always be provided with the correct equipment to carry out your work safely. If you have incorrect equipment or the tools are faulty your employer may be considered negligent.
- Training: You and everyone else involved in the task should have the correct level of training and supervision. Failure to provide this may mean that your employer is negligent.
- Safety equipment: The correct clothing and other equipment can mean the difference between a minor and a major injury. This may include overalls, boots, helmets, gloves, goggles and ear protectors. If your employer does not take reasonable steps to protect you from injury then they may be considered negligent.
