Although not commonplace, injuries on escalators do happen, and Accident Advice Helpline can give you advice about claiming using no win no fee in Edinburgh East if you’ve sustained an injury while you were travelling on one.
The fear of getting entangled
Many people experience the same fleeting worry every time they dismount an escalator. It’s that moment when the steps flatten out and you have step off the moving platform, and back onto terra firma, over the interface where the flattened steps disappear into their casing. There’s always that niggling doubt about getting an article of clothing or footwear entangled in the steps and getting trapped, dragged and injured. The same thing can happen with the moving banister rail too. It’s admittedly rare, but these things do happen. It’s why all escalators here in the UK are fitted with emergency stop buttons.
As with any injury anyone considers raising a claim for, the first thing that has to be considered, is who is to blame for the injury? If it’s just down to the negligence or clumsiness of the hapless victim, there’s no real grounds to make a claim. But if the accident is caused by a trip hazard created by someone else, or through faulty product design, then there may be grounds for compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline can help you claim using no win no fee in Edinburgh East.
