    How to survive a train crash – injury lawyers in Wallsend

    Although it is very rare to be involved in any type of train crash, it can be useful to know what you should do if you are involved in some kind of crash. Because train crashes are so rare, most people don’t know what to do if the situation does occur, and thus can panic and get themselves injured worse than they otherwise would. It is possible to stay safe and survive a train crash, and here are some tips on doing so.

    Pay attention

    There will probably be announcements made over the PA, or by staff passing through the train. Make sure that you are quiet and listening so that you can hear these, and then follow any instructions given.

    Use the emergency alarm

    If you see potential danger and are sure that something needs to be done, locate and press the emergency alarm as soon as possible to let the driver know that there is a problem. It is better to be wrong and have to explain what happened, than to be right and not do anything.

    Move away from the danger

    If it is at all possible to move away from the source of the danger, such as into another carriage, then do this immediately. If you cannot move into another carriage, then at least try to move to the other end of your carriage from where the danger seems to be.

    Get off of the train

    Find an emergency exit or window, or in the worst case scenario break a regular window in order to leave the train as quickly as you can. Once you are free of the train, get as far away from the tracks as you can.
