Have you suffered an accident in Connah’s Quay whilst travelling by train?
Although travelling by train tends to be relatively safe, many people do still sustain injuries whilst on trains or at railway stations. Of course, serious incidents, such as crashes and collisions, generally cause multiple serious injuries but, fortunately, these seem to be relatively rare. However, when an incident does occur, people may want to obtain compensation for an accident in Connah’s Quay.
If you have been hurt whilst using a train and an accident in Connah’s Quay has occurred, there is a chance that the train company could be at fault. If, for example, a door or a seat was broken or damaged and this caused you to suffer some form of injury, you could make a compensation claim against the train company.
Alternatively, you may find that another passenger has accidentally caused you to sustain an injury. If, for example, they struck you with their luggage, you may have suffered an injury because of their conduct. In such cases, you could go on to make a compensation claim against them.
Don’t forget – in order to successfully obtain compensation you will have had to have received medical treatment of some sort. If you’ve been badly hurt whilst on a train, don’t suffer in silence. Each carriage is equipped with emergency cords which alert the driver to any urgent situations on board. If necessary, medical professionals can be dispatched to you whilst you are on board the train.
If you haven’t been seriously injured, you may be able to vacate the train at the next stop in order to seek help. Providing you do receive medical treatment at this point, you could still go on to make a claim for the accident in Connah’s Quay.
