Burtonwood is a village between the towns of St Helens and Warrington, it’s the only place in the British Isles to bear this name, whose history stretches back to the thirteenth century and probably further. The population has always been small in number, yet Burtonwood, for such a small village, is well known for two phenomena: it’s American connection and it’s beer!
Burtonwood parish is a mixture of old and new. From a small rural community of a few scattered farms and cottages, it grew into a village and later became a strong farming community and then came the brewery which still produces excellent beer.
Whilst the majority of the time Burtonwood is a fun and safe place to be there is always those rare and unfortunate times when people find themselves caught up in nasty accidents.
People who have been injured in accidents through no fault of their own should not suffer in silence. They should seek justice and claim cash compensation for their injuries. Of course when nursing injuries and trying to recover this may be the last thing that people feel like doing.

Statistics have shown that passengers suffer an accident on a train in several ways. Actual train collisions account for a very small proportion of all injuries. Passengers are much more likely to suffer a slip, trip or fall. Some of these falls have actually been fatal. Accidents at the platform-train interface are also fairly common. This includes passengers getting on and off trains. Contact with an object or person also accounts for some further injuries. A small number of people have been struck by a train on a station crossing.
For most of us a train is a way of getting from one location to another but for many people, the train and the train station is a place of work. Workers can get injured on trains and in stations just like in any other place of work. If you are a train worker and have been injured because of something that your employer did then you may be able to claim compensation. Perhaps you have been injured because of something that your employer did not do. This may include providing you with suitable training. Under these circumstances, you may also be able to make a claim. The highest number of accidents is recorded for the infrastructure workforce. These tend to be the jobs related to maintaining the railway line and involve equipment, machinery and working alongside the track.
If you have experienced any of the above situations and wish to seek compensation for your injuries you should contact the Accident Advice Helpline’s lawyer in Burtonwood.
