If you have been involved in an accident at Liverpool Street or any other railway station in the UK, and you can prove the accident was not your fault, you could be contemplating the idea of making an injury claim in Liverpool Street. Alternatively you may work at Liverpool Street station, and you may have had an accident at work, and you may be able to prove that it was caused your employer’s negligence; in which case you may also be able to make an injury claim in Liverpool Street.
Injury claim in Liverpool Street
You need to file most types of personal injury compensation claims within three years of the date of the accident or within three years of being diagnosed with an illness which was caused by someone else’s negligence. However there are some claims for injuries and accidents which have to be filed within two years. Why not check with us at Accident Advice Helpline and discover exactly how long you have in which to file your claim?
If you have a slip, trip or fall in any railway station, and were injured, you may be able to make a personal injury claim in Liverpool Street or one from anywhere else in the country. You might slip on a wet floor, or on some discarded or spilled food. The staff at the station are responsible for ensuring people are safe in the station, so if a spillage had not been cleaned up, you could claim that their negligence was responsible for your accident. Similarly ice and snow should be cleared from platforms and other areas at a railway station so that the risk of accidents is minimised.
Of course, you could also have an accident while on a train. Sometimes two trains collide, or trains can be derailed because of damaged tracks. Signal failure can also occur and cause accidents. Accidents also occur because of adverse weather conditions and objects, animals or people on the tracks. Sometimes, as happened in October 2013, train services are suspended because of extreme weather. The hurricane-force winds of the storm called Saint Jude force many train operators to temporarily suspend services. If you are injured in a train accident, you could probably claim personal injury compensation.
Although travelling by train is relatively safe, accidents do happen. You may slip in the buffet car because of spilled food and liquid, or you may be hit on the head if a piece of luggage in the overhead rack has not been stowed away securely. You may be able to make an injury claim in any of these instances.
