Injured on public transport in London?
Aside from the most obvious cause of injuries on public transport – train or bus collisions – there are plenty of hazards lurking on buses, trains and tubes which could leave you injured. For example, you could be injured at the station after receiving an electric shock from a faulty ticket machine or tripping on a damaged platform. You could be knocked onto the train lines by other commuters and sustain serious injuries or you could suffer lacerations from faulty seating or other station furniture. Once you’re on the train itself, you could be injured if you slip on a wet floor or trap your arm or fingers in the door of the train. You could even be injured getting onto or off the train if you trip on a damaged step. Slip, trip and fall injuries can be serious and can include injuries such as:
- Sprained ankles or wrists
- Broken bones – usually a broken ankle, foot, arm or wrist
- Head and facial injuries if you hit your head as you fall
- Crush injuries – for example if you trap your arm in the door
