There are clearly a lot of things that can go wrong whilst working on a train track, some of them very serious, and, if you have been the victim of an avoidable injury of this nature, you may be eligible to make a train track engineer accident claim.
Railway tracks are a very dangerous environment, particularly if the right conditions are not met. For example, the correct health and safety protocols are essential for employees working around trains – as is suitable protective clothing, well-maintained equipment and high-quality on-the-job training. A failure to fulfil any of these criteria could constitute a breach of care on the part of the employer and, potentially, lead to a serious accident. For instance, a failure to provide clear safety instructions can lead to electric shocks, trips, slips, falls, fractures and severe lesions.

If we decide to proceed with your case, you will be asked to provide as much detail about your accident, and subsequent injuries, as possible. In order to be eligible, the incident must have occurred within the last three years and must have been the result of negligence on the part of a third party.
If possible, you should keep photographic evidence both of your injuries and of the equipment that caused them, in order to build up a b case.

Why is Accident Advice Helpline right for me?
We have dealt with thousands of cases, many involving accidents on industrial work sites, so we understand what needs to be done to give a claim the best possible chance of success. If you have suffered a train track injury that wasn’t your fault, within the last three years, you may be eligible for a compensatory pay out.
We also understand that it can take time to bounce back from a physical or psychological trauma and that, if the accident could have been avoided, you may develop feelings of bitterness and anger. We believe that this negative emotion can be channelled into positive action if you take a stand and make sure that nobody else gets hurt in the same way that you did.
