If you’re planning to take a long train journey and suspect that you might be in need of some refreshments before you reach your final destination, it will be a good idea to stock up on some food and drink before your departure. If you fail to do so, your only option will be to purchase the incredibly over-priced stuff sold on the train. In many parts of the country, train refreshments are now sold by people pushing a trolley up and down train carriages.
Although this will save you the bother of having to get up from your seat to walk to the buffet carriage, a clumsy trolley pusher could wind up doing you an injury in an accident that was not your fault for which you might be able to claim compensation. If you’d like to get a feel for what you might be able to win in such circumstances, take a look at our personal injury claim calculator in North Tyneside.
Train buffet trolley accidents and our personal injury claim calculator in North Tyneside
Imagine that you were sitting on a train making your way to the seaside one sunny afternoon. It’s a fairly long journey and you forgot to purchase a bottle of water at the railway station. You’re feeling thirsty, so decide to buy some water and a hot cup of coffee when the buffet trolley comes past.
As the buffet trolley approaches, you signal that you would like something to the lady pushing it. As she tries to bring her trolley to a halt just next to you, she misjudges the distance and ends up running over your foot. This is extremely painful and requires immediate hospital treatment, forcing you to abandon your plans for a day at the beach. It transpires that the trolley wheel broke a bone in one of your toes.
