Are you making an accident claim because you’ve been injured on public transport in Greenwich?
Although many people work in the City of London, not everyone is able to live in the capital on a full time basis. This means that thousands of people commute into London each day from all over the country. Despite an extensive infrastructure of public transport, the sheer number of people using the system can mean that injuries sometimes occur. If you have been hurt or injured whilst commuting into the City, you may want to make an accident claim if you have been injured on public transport in Greenwich.
Of course, in order to make a successful accident claim for being injured on public transport in Greenwich, you will need to prove that you weren’t at fault and that you didn’t cause your injuries. If, for example, you were travelling on a train at the time you were injured, you will need to show that another passenger or the train company itself was responsible for your injury.
If you know that you weren’t at fault but you aren’t sure who is legally responsible for your injuries, there’s no need to worry. In most cases, your personal injury solicitors will be able to help you identify who should be held accountable for the harm you’ve suffered and you can then make your accident claim against them.
Have you incurred expenses because of your injuries?
Unfortunately, serious injuries don’t just affect a person’s health. In many cases, people can also suffer financially when they are hurt or injured. If, for example, you are unable to care for your children as a result of your injuries, you may need to pay for additional childcare support. Similarly, if you are unable to drive due to your injuries, you may have to pay additional travel costs until you are fully healed.
If you have incurred financial hardship because of your injuries, it may be even more important for you to make an accident claim. If your claim is successful, you could be awarded additional funds to cover the cost of any expenses you’ve incurred, as well as compensation for your injuries.
