Compensation Claim in Westleton

Accidents on public transport

With the rising cost in petrol and the other costs associated with running and keeping a vehicle, many people are turning to public transport (bus, coach or train) as a viable option of getting around. Unfortunately, as with any other mode of transport, there is the opportunity for people to be injured whilst they are travelling on public transport.

If you have been involved in an accident on any form of public transport, and you have been injured as a result, then you might be entitled to make a compensation claim in Westleton. Contact Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 to find out more.

Trains

Travelling by train is becoming increasingly popular, and is often used as a way of commuting to and from work. For the largest part, the rail system within the UK is perfectly safe (if a little slow at times) and most people will not experience any difficulties whilst travelling via this method. However, sometimes accidents do occur and result in passengers being injured — sometimes with fairly small injuries, sometimes seriously.

If you have been injured whilst on board a train and don’t think the accident was your fault, then you could be entitled to make a compensation claim in Westleton. Your accident does not necessarily have to have occurred on the train itself — you could just as easily be injured on the platform or inside the station area itself.

Derailments and crashes

Arguably the most serious types of accidents that can occur with trains are derailments and crashes. These accidents can be caused by a variety of things, including:

  • Damage to tracks which should have been fixed and regularly maintained;
  • Mechanical problems which the service provider should have been aware of;
  • Objects or people on the track which should have been avoided if the area was properly supervised;
  • Weather conditions which should have been suitably prepared for and the proper precautions taken; and
  • Collisions, sometimes caused by signal failures or driver error.

Although the reasons for these accidents all vary, the one thing that they do all have in common is that they could have been prevented — and they should have been.
