The town and seaside resort of Eastbourne in East Sussex lies on the south coast of England. With an economy that relies mostly on tourism and seaside attractions, the population has increased in recent years and 99,412 people lived here in 2011. Eastbourne continues to attract a younger population of students and those commuting to work in Brighton and London, looking for a slower pace of life outside these busy cities.
This influx of commuters means that roads and rail networks are more jam-packed than ever, and if you have been injured in an accident whilst commuting to work here, you’re not alone. If you’re working in London and commuting to Eastbourne, your finances are probably already pretty stretched, so you might not think you can afford to make a claim for personal injury compensation if the worst happens. But with Accident Advice Helpline you could make an Eastbourne no win, no fee* claim, as our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
Whether you commute to work by road or rail, you could be injured in an accident that was somebody else’s fault on your way to the office (or wherever you work). Here are a few examples of the types of injuries we have handled Eastbourne no win, no fee* claims for over the past 15 years:
- Slip, trip and fall injuries – for example if you trip on a faulty step on the train or fall down a flight of damaged steps at the station
- Crush injuries from an over-packed train
- Collision injuries such as a head injury or broken bones if the train or bus you are travelling on is involved in a collision
- Car accident injuries such as whiplash and broken bones
- Lacerations from broken or damaged seats or other materials on a train or bus
If you have suffered either minor or more serious injuries during your commute, ask yourself who is at fault. For example if you were injured by a faulty train step, the train company could be held liable for your injuries and ordered to pay you personal injury compensation.
