Injury lawyers in Whitechapel
Although increasingly pricey since privatisation, train travel remains a fast and largely reliable way to get around, as does the London Underground. London Mayor Boris Johnson announced in November 2013 that the Tube would begin to run 24 hours a day over the weekend from 2015. He also announced that staffed ticket offices would be abolished from almost all London Underground stations at the same time, prompting unions to warn that such a move would put passengers in danger by making the underground less safe.
If you ever have the misfortune to be injured in an accident that was not your fault while travelling on an underground or overground train, there will be a good chance that you may be able to use the services of a good injury lawyer in Whitechapel to sue the organisation that was responsible for the incident for compensation.
Underground, over ground and injury lawyers Whitechapel solicitors
If your train comes to an abrupt halt or is involved in a minor crash that occurred as a consequence of mechanical problems, or your train driver did not paying attention to what he was doing, you will have a pretty good chance of using an injury lawyer in Whitechapel to take action against either the train operator, Network Rail or London Underground, depending on where you were travelling and which organisation was responsible for the incident.
You may also be able to take action if you are hurt by a damaged seat on a train. If you were to sit down on a train seat, only for it to collapse, causing you to fall and dislocate your ankle, you may have a case for compensation. You might also be in line for a pay-out if you were to cut yourself on an exposed sharp section of a broken seat.
Then there is the chance that a clumsy buffet cart worker might accidently spill a boiling hot beverage over you, causing some very nasty burns. In all of these scenarios, there will be a chance that a good injury lawyer in Whitechapel might be able to win you many thousands of pounds in compensation for what happened to you.
