Common UK train accidents

Statistics show that rail passengers suffer accidents in several ways but train collisions account for a very small proportion of all injuries. Passengers are much more likely to suffer a slip, trip or fall and these can even be fatal. Accidents at the platform-train interface are also fairly common. This includes passengers getting on and off trains. Contact with an object or person also accounts for some further injuries. A small number of people have been struck by a train on a station crossing. Any of these can give rise to a railway injury claim.

What does a railway injury claim involve?

Railways are either a mode of transport or a place of work. Workers can get injured on trains and in stations just as they can in other workplaces. If you are a train worker and have been injured because of something that your employer did then you may be able to start a railway compensation claim with an injury claims solicitor in Leek Wootton. You may have been injured because of something that your employer failed to do to protect your health and safety. This may include providing you with suitable training and under these circumstances you may also be able to make a claim. The railway workers who suffer the highest rates of accidents are the infrastructure workforce. These tend to be the jobs related to maintaining the railway line and involve heavy equipment and machinery working alongside the track. Accident Advice Helpline can help with all stages of a railway injury claim so give them a call and let them take over from there.
