Railway stations and accidents
Railway stations can be dangerous places. Of course, we know to stand away from the edge of the platform if a train is due to roar past. However, occasionally you will find that the painted safety line has worn away. The owners of the station should keep the line clearly marked as an accident involving a fatality could occur.
If you slip, trip or fall on a platform or in an eating area because food or liquid has been spilled and not cleaned up, you may be able to prove that the negligence of members of staff caused your accident and injury. Similarly if you slip and fall on ice or snow which has not been cleared away from the station’s entrance or the platforms, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim against the owners of the premises.
