Injury claim lawyer in Horley
The Surrey town of Horley sits close to the towns of Reigate, Crawley and Redhill. It’s also very close to Gatwick, the UK’s second largest airport. Judi Dench and assorted members of the Goth pop-rock group The Cure live nearby. Due to its proximity to the airport, Horley has at various points in history been home to a number airline offices. It’s very much a commuter town, with fast rail links north into London, and south down to the seaside city of Brighton and Hove.
Like many commuter towns, the morning rush to catch the train can be a bit of a free-for-all. At times, too many people bustling for position on platforms and trains, can be sufficient to cause an accident, particularly if said platforms and trains have not been maintained as they should. If you find yourself unfortunate enough to be using the train at Horley and suffer an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to get compensation through an injury claim lawyer in Horley.
Who will pay my compensation?
Don’t worry; any pay-out you win won’t come out of the public purse. Britain’s rail system was privatised back in the early nineties. So, if you were injured as the result of an accident that wasn’t your fault, while on a train or at a station, any compensation might win would have to be paid by whichever private rail company’s train you were on, or Network Rail, which owns the majority of stations in the UK.
In case you are wondering, most trains that pass through Horley are operated by either First Capital Connect or Southern trains. In most cases, rail firms would have liability insurance in place, but this might not pay out if negligence were involved. If this were the case, the rail firm itself would have to stump up any money you were entitled to. As you’d be dealing with a private company, you’d have no need to feel bad about this, not that you necessarily should if you were suing a charity or a public body.
