Ripon sue for damages


If you’re of a certain vintage, you’ll probably be able to remember a time when railway stations didn’t have ticket barriers to keep fare dodgers off the network. In older days, train operators would employ ticket inspectors to police the platforms or leave some stations unattended. These days, you can still find smaller stations that have not been fitted with ticket barriers, but these are becoming increasingly few and far between.

Ticket barriers themselves cost many thousands of pounds to install, but presumably pay for themselves in the revenue they recover. Newer barriers include larger gates for people with a large amount of luggage, a buggy or the disabled, but these can be hard to operate if you’re carrying bags or pushing a buggy or a wheelchair. As such, station staff will often help people through these gates.

But what would happen if one of these gates were to malfunction or a station staff member ushered you through a gate at the wrong time. If a gate were to close as a buggy carrying a small child were passing through it, the consequences would almost be too harrowing to contemplate.

We can help people in Ripon sue for damages if they or a loved one were to be injured by a faulty ticket gate at a railway station, and could prove that the incident occurred as a result of negligence, irresponsibility or recklessness.

Helping people in Ripon sue for damages

Picture the scene; you arrive at your local railway station with little time to catch your train. You’re travelling to the airport to catch a flight but have left yourself little time, so it is vital that you get on your train. You’ve already bought your ticket, so you rush over to the ticket barrier.

As you have a large bag and a buggy with you, you have no alternative but to use the large gate at the side of the others. A member of station staff opens the gate for you, but as you are pushing your buggy through, the gate slams shut, crushing your child’s leg in the process.

Under these circumstances, there will be a chance that you might be able to sue for damages against the operator of the station with the assistance of a top 100% no win, no fee* personal injury solicitor.
