    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Loughton

    It is not a pleasant thought imagining how you and your family would cope if you were involved in an accident. Many people invest in a variety of insurance policies to help protect them financially, should this happen but on occasions, the accident so serious, the injuries so impacting on daily life that many people turn to our lawyers to help them claim compensation.

    How do you get to work?

    Many people commute to work and do so by many different methods. Some walk, others cycle, many take their cars to work and other take trams, as well as some people enjoying a daily rail trip.

    The railway is becoming a popular choice for commuting with an increase of around 8% on the numbers of people travelling on the railway year-on-year. Estimates are that people are now making a staggering 1.5 billion journeys every year.

    A relatively safe form of travel, it is not just accident ON the railway that passengers need to be wary of:

    • Stations can also be scenes of accidents from slips of the platform, to tumbles down the stairs and problems on the escalators.
    • Accidents at rail crossings are also a well-publicised issues.
    • Commuters and passengers are not the only people at risk; the workforce can be at risk too with major incidents reported involving injury to over 100 members of the work force each year.

    Making a claim

    No matter where your accident or the injuries sustained, there are key factors that must be present in all potential compensation claims:

    • The accident must not have been you fault – according to personal injury law (in which our lawyers are specialists), anyone hurt as a result of an accident that was not your fault is entitled to claim compensation.
    • Your injuries must have been assessed by a medical professional – personal injury also states clearly that any injuries received as a result of the accident must have been tended and treated by a suitably qualified medical professional. Your lawyer will need to ask you these details.
    • Within the three year deadline – there is also a three year deadline within which any claim for compensation must be made. Even an expert lawyer cannot move this date!
