Accidents on public transport
In December 2013, a bus crashed into a tree in London. At least two passengers sustained serious injuries, although, luckily, most only had minor ones. The bus driver had swerved to avoid hitting a car and unfortunately the bus hit the tree. Such accidents are infrequent, but accidents do happen.
More often, there are accidents involving trains. You may also be injured in a fall while on a railway station platform, or even while on the train. If you can prove that your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence, then you may have grounds to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Train accidents can occur if there are bad weather conditions, with snow and ice on the tracks, or if there is an obstacle on the tracks. Perhaps a tree or branch had fallen due to heavy winds, or there may have been an animal or a person on the tracks. Sometime signals fail and trains collide. Level crossings can also be hazardous as sometimes a vehicle can be on the crossing while a train is approaching, perhaps due to a technical failure.
While travelling on a train you may slip, trip or fall if liquid or food has been spilled and not cleaned up. If you are injured because of such an occurrence, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against the owners of the train. You may also be hit by an object falling from the overhead rack, and you could, once again, be eligible to make a claim.
