Are you claiming compensation after an accident on the train?
With more and more people using trains to get around the country, carriages are becoming particularly overcrowded on some of the more popular routes. Although train companies have pledged to increase the frequency of services, in many instances this has failed to happen, and certain routes are often over-subscribed.
When people try to cram onto a carriage, it can make for an uncomfortable journey and mean that more people are likely to get hurt. Of course, any sort of crash or derailment could be catastrophic, but more straightforward incidents may actually be more likely to occur on a daily basis. If, for example, people travel with luggage, they may be forced to lay it on the floor if the overhead lockers are all full. Another passenger could then easily trip or stumble over it, and they could be hurt as a result.
Similarly, if someone decides to have a hot drink whilst travelling, but they are forced to stand in the carriage due to a lack of seats, they could easily spill hot water over another passenger if the train was to jump or lurch, or they were jostled due to the overcrowding.
If you do suffer an injury whilst on the train and it wasn’t your fault, it’s possible that another passenger has inadvertently injured you or that the train company was at fault. As such, you could claim compensation for your public transport injury in Tyne and Wear. If you aren’t sure against whom to make your claim for we may be able to help.
