Searching for expert injury lawyers in Kendal? Wherever you live in Britain, you could need the advice of injury lawyers if you were injured in an accident that was not your fault. If you can prove that the accident was not your fault, then you could possibly make a successful claim for compensation. Typical causes of claims for injuries from non-fault accidents are:
- Accidents at work
- Illnesses or deterioration of health related to work;
- Clinical negligence;
- Road traffic accidents; and
- Accidents at sea, on public transport and rail accidents.
Let the train take the strain
Travelling by train across the British Isles is one of the safest forms of travel, yet accidents can occur because of freak conditions or due to weather coming down. The worst seasons for unexpected weather conditions are autumn and winter, which is hardly surprising, but they do give rise to conditions unique to the season. For instance, at the time of leaf-fall, “leaves on the line” bring whole train networks to a standstill because the metal wheels cannot grip the track, and the only effect the pressure of the wheels has is to compact the biomass. In winter, “the wrong kind of snow” can cause the wheels to lose traction and leave trains stuck until a thaw sets in.
Other common causes of accidents are animals or vehicles on the line, creating very dangerous scenarios. Of particular concern these days are the old-fashioned style of single barrier level-crossings or unmanned level-crossings with no gates. Every year there are at least one or two reports of tragic accidents of people taking a chance on crossing, trying to beat an oncoming train and being hit in the process. Of course the rail system cannot be blamed for that, but it seems inevitable the old-style of level-crossing will be phased out urgently in an effort to prevent these kinds of needless accidents.
