There have been three train accidents at Potters Bar since the railway system began. The first was in 1898, when a train crashed into the platform, but luckily no one was injured. The second was in 1946 when a train was derailed, and two other trains crashed into it, and the last one occurred in 2002 when a high-speed train was derailed. Unfortunately in that accident seven people in total were killed and more than seventy were injured. In May 2011 Network Rail, the operators of the train and the company responsible for the maintenance of the track was fined £3 million for breaching safety regulations.
If you travel by train on a regular basis, you will know that this mode of transport is relatively safe, although accidents can occur. Not only can trails be derailed because of faulty points, damage to the track and so on, but bad weather conditions may also cause accidents (such as snow, ice or wet leaves on the tracks). Sometimes trains collide with objects, animals or people on the tracks. If you are injured in a train accident, then you should consult experienced injury solicitors in Potters Bar, to find out if you can make a personal injury compensation claim.
