If you are a resident of Larbert, you may commute into the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow by train, or perhaps you drive into Falkirk or Stirling. If you are injured in an accident while commuting, and you can prove that you were not to blame for that accident, you may be looking for injury lawyers in Larbert to help you file a personal injury compensation claim. You usually have three years in which to file a claim, but as in some cases you only have two years in which to do this, perhaps you should contact injury lawyers in Larbert or ones near you, to find out how long you have in which to claim for your particular injury. You can also get this information from us at Accident Advice Helpline.
Injury lawyers in Larbert
You may also be seeking injury lawyers in Larbert or elsewhere if you have been diagnosed with an illness which was the result of another person’s negligence. This might be the negligence of your GP or a hospital doctor who misdiagnosed you and subsequently gave you the wrong medication or surgery. In such a case you would need to find a clinical negligence expert to represent you.
You may have been diagnosed with a work-related illness, and if so, you and your injury lawyers in Larbert (for example) could build a case to prove that your illness was caused by your employer’s negligence.
If you regularly commute by train, then you may at some point have an accident and be injured at a railway station or while travelling on a train. Although rail travel is relatively safe, accidents can and do occur.
On 12th November 2013, two people were injured when a train hit a car on a level crossing. An elderly man had been killed at the same level crossing in January 2013. Trains can collide with obstacles on the railway tracks, and such obstacles could be animals, people, vehicles or fallen trees and branches.
Sometimes two trains collide, as happened in July 2013 in Norfolk railway station. Luckily, because both trains were travelling slowly, people only suffered minor injuries.
You can slip, trip or fall anywhere, and if you are injured, you may be able to claim compensation if, for example staff at the railway station had failed to clear it of ice and snow. You may have slipped in the buffet car on a train because spilled food or liquid had not been cleaned up.
In these instances you may, along with your injury lawyers in Larbert or ones based in any other location in the British Isles, be able to prove that another person’s negligence caused your injuries.
