    The area of Temple in central London gives its name to Temple London Underground Station, which is used by commuters who work in the west of the capital. While the London Underground transports approximately three million passengers each week, relatively few accidents occur. Anyone who has been unlucky enough to experience an accident on the tube should determine whether they are eligible to claim compensation.

    Potential causes of tube accidents

    Tube accidents can be caused by a range of factors, including:

    • Platform overcrowding
    • Getting on or off the tube
    • Faulty tracks
    • Negligent driving
    • Collisions
    • Derailment
    • Unexpected manoeuvres
    • Vehicle failure

    Accidents on the tube have the potential to cause severe injuries, including:

    • Broken bones
    • Head, neck and back injuries
    • Whiplash
    • Cuts and bruises

    Tips for avoiding injuries on the tube

    To reduce the risk of sustaining injuries on a tube, passengers should remain seated and keep their personal belongings under the seats or in specialised luggage compartments at all times.

    Actions to take following a tube accident

    Following a tube accident, passengers must:

    1. Report the accident to an official and take down the name, job title and contact details of that person.
    2. Retain their tickets.
    3. Seek medical advice from a hospital or doctor’s surgery.
    4. Keep a log of any treatment received.
    5. Collect the names and addresses of any witnesses to the accident.

    In doing so, they will be able to help an accident solicitor in Temple to claim compensation on their behalf.

    Hiring a tube accident solicitor Temple

    While passengers can make tube accident compensation claims without the help of a specialist legal team, this is not advisable. An accident solicitor in Temple will be able to take on a tube accident case and provide 100% no win, no fee* expert representation.

    Limitations for making tube accident claims

    Tube accident compensation must be claimed within three years of the date on which the accident occurred. If a passenger was under the age of 18 when the accident happened, the three year period will start on the date the passenger turns 18 years of age.
