Are you making a ‘no win, no fee’ Wycombe compensation claim because you were hurt whilst waiting for a train?
Although train travel in itself isn’t particularly dangerous, people can suffer injuries whilst waiting at train stations, as well as on board a train. As people tend to wait on the platform for a train to arrive, they can be fairly near to the train whilst it’s moving at a relatively high speed. Although people are advised to stand back from the edge of the platform, the volume of people waiting for the train may make it difficult to stand at a safe distance from the edge.
Indeed, as a train approaches, people can tend to rush to get onboard. Unfortunately, this means that people can get jostled or even pushed which can lead to them falling from the platform. Obviously, if they were to fall in the path of a train, the consequences would be catastrophic and it’s likely that they would be killed immediately. However, there have been instances in which people have been rescued after falling on to the track. Whilst you may still sustain injuries, your life could be saved if you were able to get off the track before a train approached.
When these types of incidents occur, it isn’t always clear who is responsible. Whilst you may need to make your ‘no win, no fee’ Wycombe compensation claim against the person who pushed you, the train company or station managers could also be held responsible. They are required to ensure that the train platforms do not become too crowded. Indeed, some busier train stations suspend access to the platforms during peak hours so that they cannot become overcrowded. If they fail to do this and an accident occurs, it is possible that they could be held responsible and you could make your ‘no win, no fee’ Wycombe compensation claim against them.
When it comes to making a ‘no win, no fee’ Wycombe compensation claim, potential claimants sometimes aren’t sure what they should do first or what they will need to do in order to obtain compensation efficiently.
