A train crash is a rare event.
So infrequent that we barely think about it when embarking on even a long train journey. For the people of Powys, train travel is a vital part of life, whether for visiting family, socialising or commuting for work every day. These rail passengers do not consider the possibility of a rail crash occurring.
However, as rare as it is, it is not impossible and train crashes and derailments do happen. If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in such an accident it can have a huge impact on your way of life. An impact that can continue to affect you for years afterwards.
Victim of a public transport accident in Powys?
When you are the victim of a train crash, or any other public transport accident in Powys, you have the right to be compensated for the injuries you sustain due to somebody else’s mistakes.
If you are involved in a train crash, you should, if possible, take photos of the crash site. Photos of multiple angles of the crash, the cause of the crash if visible, and any injuries you have sustained, can aid in your compensation claim. Accident Advice Helpline know how difficult such an accident can be, and the impact your injuries can have on your life. The psychological and emotional damage that you sustain can be as horrific as the physical injuries you are forced to deal with.
Beyond these issues, the aftermath of a public transport accident in Powys can also take a severe strain on your finances. If your work life is affected, you can lose valuable earnings. Your restricted movement caused by your injuries could mean that you have to hire in extra childcare and help with day to day tasks. This can have a further impact on your financial stability.
