Let’s talk trains. Kings Cross and Euston stations are key points on routes for many journeys across London and the UK, for rail, boat and air passengers. Although quite close, the transit from one to the other can be a bit tricky and passengers should remember to allow enough time to do it.
Station concourses can be fraught with obstacles. Just the hustle and bustle of a crowd can trip people up. Management and staff do their best to keep the passenger flow clear of stray suitcases and bulky bags and watch out for that wandering luggage trolley over there.
“Mind your backs”, the traditional call of market porters all over the world, is often heard in electronic format, the shrill beeping of the motor-driven hazard approaching from behind, the mini-tractor pulling its snake of havoc-wreaking trolleys. Better jump out of the way.
Kings Cross and Euston, as two of London’s main rail terminals, are very busy places and these days most trains run full. When the carriages disgorge their load, great herds of humans rush across the plains of concrete to make their next connection, meeting or destination. These are not places for the faint-hearted. It’s probably surprising that we don’t see more injury claims in Kings Cross/Euston than we do.
What about my injury claim Kings Cross/Euston?
The basic principles are no different to any other injury claim. The victim of a non-fault accident should stake their claim within 3 years of the accident if they know who was at fault and can prove it. If they needed medical treatment, then they could be entitled to compensation.
What circumstances lead to an injury claim Kings Cross/Euston?
Slips, trips and falls are the commonest reasons for an injury claim at a railway or tube station. As we’ve discussed, a passenger can go flying over a suitcase or bag, crash over that baggage trolley that wasn’t there a few seconds ago or slip on a spillage or wet floor that had no warning signs.
