Accidents on trains
Although travelling by train is relatively safe, and certainly takes the stress out of a long journey because you do not have to drive, accidents can occur. Passengers can claim for injuries which were caused by accidents on trains, just as railway workers can.
Some common accidents on trains are being hit by falling objects because items such as luggage were not properly stowed. If the train has a buffet car then there is a danger of receiving a burn because of boiling liquid accidentally falling onto you, or some passengers may suffer from food poisoning after eating food from the buffet. You could slip, trip or fall on a train, on a railway platform or anywhere else at a railway station and you might have grounds to claim compensation for your injury. You might also be cut by a sharp object protruding from a seat or a sharp point on a defective armrest and so on.
Some common causes of train accidents are that there is damage to the tracks, or perhaps a tree fell on them and the train collided with it. Bad weather conditions, particularly snow and ice can cause problems with the tracks and there might be a mechanical problem with the train or trains might collide due to a fault with signals or other failure.
