If you are living in Hadley Wood you may be considering making a compensation claim in Hadley Wood because you have been injured in an accident for which someone else was to blame. You could also be contemplating making an injury claim in Hadley Wood (or one elsewhere in the UK) against your employer, because you have been diagnosed with a work-related illness.
Compensation claim in Hadley Wood
You can make a compensation claim in Hadley Wood, for example, as long as you file a claim within three years of the date of your accident, or in some cases, the claim must be made within two years. If you have an occupational disease, you can make your claim within three years of the first diagnosis of the disease. However, you should make your claim as soon as you possibly can, because it can take years, rather than months for a claim to be settled if it has to go to court.
Accidents on trains and at stations
If you live in a place such as Hadley Wood, you may commute to work on a train or on the tube. Although generally travelling by train is safe, accidents do happen occasionally. Of course, both passengers and railway workers may be injured in a rail accident. You may be able to make a compensation claim in Hadley Wood for example, if you were injured in an accident on a train, a railway platform or in a station if the accident was not your fault.
Some of the most common causes of train crashes and derailments are damaged tracks, mechanical problems (either with the train or the tracks and signals), objects, or people on the tracks, and snow and ice on the tracks and other adverse weather conditions. Trains sometimes collide with other trains and vehicles of course.
