Have you been hurt because of an Essex travel accident?
Due to its close proximity to London, Essex is an ideal place for commuters to reside. With good transport links into the City, many people who work in London opt to live in more residential areas, such as the towns and cities situated throughout the county of Essex.
Although it is a popular commuter area, the demand this places on public transport can mean that services are often overcrowded and oversubscribed. Whilst most commuters are adept at finding the quickest or most convenient routes into the City, an accident on a rail line or a traffic accident can affect the way buses and trains operate.
Whilst high speed rail links can help commuters get to and from work quickly, if something goes wrong, they could face lengthy delays and even a suspended public transport service. Although this can be inconvenient, things could be far worse if you are directly affected by an Essex travel accident whilst using public transport.
If you’re hurt by an Essex travel accident whilst using public transport, you may find that the incident was inadvertently caused by the travel company themselves. If, for example, the train or bus driver made an error, they could have accidentally caused a collision of some sort.
Alternatively, if the transport vehicle wasn’t maintained properly, it might not be fit for purpose and could cause an Essex accident as a result. If the Essex travel accident was caused by the travel company, it may be possible for you and fellow passengers to claim compensation for any injuries you sustained.
However, if the Essex travel accident was caused by another passenger, you may need to make a claim against them, rather than the travel company themselves. If you’ve experienced an Essex travel accident and you’re not sure who caused it, you may want to access legal advice to determine whether or not you will be able to make a claim for compensation.
