London is a vibrant and very busy place. Hundreds of thousands of people work in London, and many more live there. Many travel in each day and take the Tube to get to the specific location they want to reach. The Tube is run to very exacting standards, and while the system gets crowded, this is because it is often the best and fastest way to get to where you want to go.
Everyone working on the Tube receives in-depth training to help them contribute to running a safe network. This is why there are so few accidents that ever occur on the Tube. However, if you are injured on the Tube you might want to find out why this occurred.
Whose fault was it?
This is the big question. In some cases, the fault of the accident will lie with the person who is injured. For example, you might be injured on the Tube because you had drunk too much and tried to run down the escalator, falling in the process. However, if you fell on the escalator because it was faulty or because the steps were slippery and potentially dangerous, this would not be your fault.
The crucial thing to remember is that you must have proof that another individual was negligent in some way. For instance, if you slip in something that has been spilled on a platform, this could be negligence on the part of a cleaner, especially if they have mopped it up and failed to leave warning signs in that area.
