Are you contacting Dumfries, accident claim solicitors after being hurt on a train?
Due to increased demand for public transport, many people find that trains and buses can become extremely overcrowded. This can be a particular problem for commuters as rush hour tends to result in an increase in the number of people using the services. As people have to get to work for a specific time, people may feel that they have no choice but to use the, already overcrowded, services.
However, transport companies do have a responsibility to follow health and safety regulations. If they run a service and allow it to be overcrowded, they could face compensation claims if people are hurt as a result. Furthermore, if an accident or collision were to occur whilst the train was overcrowded, they may find it difficult to evacuate people properly so people could suffer further injuries as a result.
If you’ve been hurt whilst travelling by train and you believe that the train company is at fault, you may be able to make a compensation claim with Dumfries, accident claim solicitors. If you can show that you weren’t responsible for your injuries, it’s likely that Dumfries, accident claim solicitors will be able to assist you and you could be awarded compensation for the harm that you’ve suffered.
Of course, there is a chance that your injuries could have been caused by another passenger, rather than the train company. If this occurs, you could still make your claim with Dumfries, accident claim solicitors but you may need to make your claim against the passenger responsible, rather than the train company themselves.
