Waltham Forest is a borough of London, towards the north of the region. The North Circular Road goes directly through the borough, dividing it into two distinct sections. Around 268,000 people call this borough home. It also provides a good place to live for those who work in the city, as the transport links into the city itself are very good indeed. While accidents on buses and other forms of public transport do occur from time to time, those who claim compensation in Waltham Forest due to an accident of this sort are few in number.
Many people choose to take public transport to get to work because it is much easier than trying to drive. Traffic in London is not surprisingly very heavy, so it can make good sense to take the Underground or the mainline trains as an alternative.
How can accidents happen?
The rarity of a train crash of any kind is such that it makes major headlines in the uncommon instances when something like this does occur. However, there are still potential situations where you could be hurt on a train platform or while in the concourse of a station. Thankfully, these too are rare.
Slips and trips can happen if the floors are wet and not marked as such, or if there are trip hazards around that have not been dealt with. You might also be in a situation where there could be something wrong with the floor surface itself, perhaps because work is being done to renovate the station. In this instance, the station should still be safe for passengers to use.
How can you tell whether compensation is possible?
When you are injured, you will automatically think about your injuries and how they might affect you on a day-to-day basis. It is much harder to consider whether or not you can claim compensation in Waltham Forest if you have no knowledge of how to do so.
