There is a place named Broxburn in both West and East Lothian, Scotland. You might have visited the Almondell & Calderwood Country Park, which is near Broxburn in West Lothian. If you go there, you may catch glimpses of roe deer, herons, shy foxes or otters. Broxburn was founded in the 1800s but nearby (and adjoining) Uphall is ancient, with St. Nicholas’ church being built in the 12th century, as was Strathbrock castle. Broxburn grew with the coming of the canal and railways. Also coal, limestone and ironstone industries were established there.

If you were injured in a rail accident and were a passenger on a train, you would probably be able to claim personal injury compensation, as it is unlikely that you would have been to blame for the accident. Although travelling by train is relatively safe, collisions do occur between trains and derailments happen.
Train accidents can be caused by branches, fallen trees, animals or people on the tracks as well as by signal failure. Level-crossings can be dangerous and sometimes vehicles are hit by a fast-moving train. Bad weather can also cause accidents as there could be snow and ice, or wet leaves on the tracks.
You could also have an accident while walking along the aisle of a train if food or liquid have been spilled and not cleaned up. Such an accident could also occur in the buffet car. If you are injured in such an accident, you might be eligible to make a compensation claim against the train operators because of the negligence of staff who had not cleaned up the spillage.
If you slip, trip or fall at the station, you might also be able to prove that the negligence of the staff caused your accident because ice and snow had not been cleared from the platform, for example.
