Have you been injured on a train journey in an accident that wasn’t your fault? Are you considering claiming for compensation? To find out if you can make a claim, contact Accident Advice Helpline today.
Injured on a train journey and wondering what to do?
The first thing you should do is get yourself checked out by a health care professional to make sure you get the immediate treatment you may need. Following this you may require further medical intervention, such as surgery. You may be prescribed pain killers or other medicine to maximise the chance of healing. Some people will require additional support from physiotherapists or occupational therapists.
Once you have received the treatment you require, you may now be thinking about claiming the compensation you need and deserve.
Injured on a train journey. Am I entitled to compensation?
As Consumer Champion and AAH endorser Esther Rantzen says ‘The law states that if you’ve been hurt, and someone else is to blame, you should be compensated.’
UK Government Health and Safety regulations stipulate very clearly the responsibility that rail companies have to keep their passengers and their staff safe from injury. The European Parliament takes this further with the 2007 regulations on rail passengers’ rights and obligations. These 2007 regulations state that the rail companies should take out insurance against personal injury claims if a passenger gets hurt. The regulations make it easier for injured passengers to make a claim and also make sure that appropriate compensation is paid in a timely fashion

I was injured on a train journey. Why does Accident Advice Helpline want to help me get compensation?

However, compensation can help with your sense of justice. It can ease any financial pressure you have incurred because of your injury. It can pay for treatments to help with your recovery. Compensation can cover any loss of earning caused by your injuries. So getting compensation can help in many different ways in the aftermath of your injury.
