Train and railway accidents
Although travelling by train is generally safe, accidents can happen. Trains sometimes collide or are derailed for a number of reasons. Some accidents are fatal, for example in the Selby train crash which happened in 2001, ten people were killed and many more were injured.
Railway operators do take the safety of passengers seriously as they demonstrated when they cancelled services in light of Storm Saint Jude in late October 2013. Bad weather conditions are sometimes responsible for train accidents (snow and ice on tracks and so on), as are obstacles on tracks (such as fallen trees, wet leaves, people or vehicles on level crossings).
You could slip, trip or fall inside a train compartment or be injured on a platform and perhaps you and your injury lawyers in Kirkby-in-Ashfield or others can prove negligence on the part of the train operators or those responsible for the maintenance of a railway station.
