Lancashire is a county towards the north of England, veering towards the west of the country. It is represented by a red rose, and was originally known as the County Palatine of Lancaster. Today, Lancaster is known as the county town. Over 1.4 million people call Lancashire their home, and live in a variety of towns and villages spread over the county. Needless to say, whatever you might want by way of goods or services, you are bound to find them somewhere in the county. This applies just as much to personal injury solicitors in Lancashire as it does to other more regularly required services and goods.
It’s quite easy to get around the area by train, since it is served by a main link to London as well as by local links to other places within Lancashire. The good news is these services are very safe and pleasant to use too, whether you use them regularly or infrequently.
Travelling safely by train
When you consider the sheer number of people travelling by train somewhere in the UK every day, it is impressive to think that accidents are kept to an absolute minimum. The application of health and safety rules, not to mention attention to safety on a daily basis by all the staff working at stations and on trains, has led to this being a very safe way to travel.
Provided you observe all the signs and recommendations that are designed to keep you safe, you shouldn’t have any problems when using trains and stations. If you were unlucky, though, you could potentially be injured if a train stopped suddenly, or if a platform was slippery and caused you to fall over.
Have you been injured while using a train or while at a station?
It doesn’t matter where you were in Lancashire, or even if you were in another part of the country altogether. The most important thing is to work out if you or someone else was at fault for what happened. Gathering the facts is vital in helping to assess the situation, and to find out if a no win, no fee* claim might be worth making.
While personal injury solicitors in Lancashire could help, there is an easier way. It involves calling the Accident Advice Helpline team on 0800 689 0500. You can do this now, with no charge, and benefit from no-obligation advice too.
