If you live in High Wycombe and use the train to commute, then you may, at some time, be the victim of an accident. There are many other types of accidents for which you might not have been responsible and if this is the case, you can claim compensation for personal injuries. You can claim at any time within three years of the accident but it is best not to delay.
Train accidents can happen for a number of reasons, none of which can be blamed on passengers. For example a piece of track may not have been well-maintained and there could be a derailment, or signals might have failed and there may have been a collision between two trains. Sometimes in severe weather a tree could fall on the track and cause an accident, or a train driver could have tried not to hit someone on the track intent on committing suicide. Train passengers can sustain a range of injuries in a train accident for which they can claim compensation.
You may have slipped, tripped or fallen due to liquid spilled in the aisle of a passenger train and sustained an injury, and if you were injured, you can claim compensation for your injury. The seat you sat on could have had a sharp object nestling inside it, and you may have suffered lacerations or a more serious injury because of this; you can claim compensation in cases such as these too.
There could also be accidents at stations; for example the platform may be icy and you could have fallen badly and broken some bones. You have a claim for compensation in this instance too, as the rail authority has an obligation to ensure the safety of staff and passengers.
