Are you claiming public transport accident compensation in Westminster?
As Westminster is one of the most well-known places in London, it is extremely popular with visitors and tourists. Indeed, most people who visit the capital will visit Westminster whilst they are in the area. In addition to being a popular tourist location, Westminster is also an employment and residential hub in the City.
With many people working in and around Westminster, there is a large demand for transport in and around the area. Although many people in smaller cities drive or walk to work, this isn’t always possible if you work in London. The sheer volume of traffic means that it would take a significant amount of time to drive yourself to and from work and the congestion charge means that it could be costly to try and do so.
If people live too far from their workplace to be able to walk to work, there is often no other choice than to use public transport. Although the London Underground does provide trains every few minutes on their routes, they can still get very busy and overcrowded particularly during peak travel times. Unfortunately, the sheer number of people using the service means that people can sometimes get hurt whilst boarding a train or whilst attempting to disembark.
If you are hurt whilst trying to use the trains in Central London, it’s likely that you will be able to get medical help straightaway. Fortunately, many staff in London stations are trained first aid so they may be able to administer help until paramedics arrive. With numerous hospitals located in the City itself, you should be able to access medical assistance within a few minutes of an injury occurring in most cases.
Once you’ve obtained treatment and you’ve begun to recover, you may decide to take further action against those responsible for causing your injury. If you feel the travel company are responsible for the harm that you suffered, you may want to make a claim for public transport accident compensation in Westminster against them directly, although this may feel like a difficult task.
