If you’re planning on taking a train journey and suspect that you might fancy some refreshments while en route to your destination, you would be well advised to stock up on food and drink before boarding the service you’re taking.
If you don’t and wind up having to buy something from the buffet trolley that makes its way up and down the walkway of your train, you’ll likely find yourself considerably out of pocket.
Avail yourself of a hot beverage or an alcoholic drink from a train buffet trolley, and you’ll typically find you’ll be shelling out at least 50% more than you might expect to pay at a café on the high street, let alone what you would pay in a supermarket.
Then there’s the risk that an encounter with a buffet trolley attendant who did not have his eye on the ball might leave you with an injury sustained in an accident that was not your fault. Having said that, this could happen regardless of whether you were making a purchase or not.
If you were to be injured in an accident that was not your fault that was caused by a wayward buffet trolley operator, there will be a chance that you might be able to retain the services of a decent 100% no win no fee personal injury solicitor with a view to suing his or her employer for compensation.
Train buffet trolley accidents and getting the help of solicitors in Ilford to make a personal injury claim
Picture the scene; you’re sitting reading the paper on your tablet computer on a packed commuter train into the city. As you boarded some way out of the city, you were fortunate enough to get a seat for yourself, you’re sitting on the aisle when your prefer a window, but at least you don’t have to stand.
As you’re seated next to a rather large gentleman, you’re raised the arm rest on the side of your seat on the aisle side and are sitting with one leg protruding slightly into the walkway. A man with a buffet trolley enters your carriage but isn’t stopping to serve anybody.
