About workplace injury claims for train drivers
Being a train driver is a stressful and high-pressure job.
Train operators have to undergo extensive training to reduce the risk of accidents and injuries, and similarly their employers are responsible for making sure all the necessary precautions are taken to reduce the risk of an accident.
However, accidents such as derailments and collisions can still occur, and in cases where driver error was not the blame, the driver may be entitled to compensation. Things like faulty tracks or signals or even another driver can lead to accidents, and in cases where a driver has been involved in an accident for which they were in no way to blame, they deserve the best possible figure in compensation.
