    Injury lawyers in Hertfordshire


    A number of tragic accidents have occurred over the years in Hertfordshire: there was the Hatfield rail crash in which 4 people died and 170 were injured in October 2000, for example. Another accident occurred on a railway line at Potter’s Bar in May 2002. Then in 2005 there were the Hemel Hempstead fuel depot explosions at the Hertfordshire oil storage terminal. If you have been injured in such an accident, when you could not have been to blame, then you may be looking for injury lawyers in Hertfordshire so that you can file a personal injury compensation claim.

    You may also be seeking injury lawyers in Hertfordshire if you have been told by a doctor that you have an illness which was caused by the negligence of another person. You have three years in which to file a personal injury compensation claim for such an illness or disease.

    Rail accidents

    Although travelling by train is relatively safe, accidents can occur because of weather conditions, such as ice and snow on the tracks (or even mounds of wet leaves on tracks). If a section of railway line has been damaged then the train could be derailed. Another cause of rail accidents is when people, animals or vehicles (on level crossings) are on the tracks. Occasionally there are signal failures and trains can collide, as happened at Norfolk station in 2013.

    You may also have an accident on the train, perhaps a slip, trip or fall caused by a spillage of liquid or food from the buffet car. If the upholstery has been damaged, you may get cuts and lacerations if there is a sharp piece of metal protruding from a seat. You may also get food poisoning after eating in the buffet car. Scalds and burns are also possible if you have a hot drink spilled over you.

    You may also have a slip, trip or fall at the railway station and you may be able to claim for an injury suffered in this way if you can prove, with your injury lawyers in Hertfordshire, for example, that staff at the station had been negligent in their duty to protect passengers.
