Specialist injury solicitors in Plumpton


Plumpton is a village in east Sussex close to the South Downs National Park. Plumpton racecourse, venue for National Hunt races, is close by. It also has a level-crossing which is the subject of some controversy in the village. Although there have been no passenger deaths on trains for the last six years, deaths continue to occur on level-crossings. This particular level-crossing is manned day and night, and it is on a quiet branch line which somehow managed to survive the Beeching axe.

The signal box is a grade II listed building, and the mechanisms which are used in it date back to the 19th century. Network Rail who operate the line want to replace the twin gates with 21st century technology, and some residents believe it will be intrusive, with klaxons and flashing lights destroying the tranquility of the village. Network Rail paid a £450,000 fine in 2013, after the death of a Herefordshire man in 2010. The fine was for not installing an automated locking system at that particular level-crossing.

If you have been injured, or a spouse, or child has died in an accident you may be looking for specialist injury solicitors in Plumpton or ones based elsewhere, in order to file a personal injury compensation claim.

Specialist injury solicitors in Plumpton

In order for any personal injury compensation claim for injuries sustained in an accident to be successful, you have to prove, along with specialist injury solicitors in Plumpton, for example, that you were in no way to blame for the accident. You generally have three years in which to file a claim against the person you allege to be responsible for it. However, there are some accidents and injuries for which you only have two years in which to make your claim.

If you want to know how much time you have in which to file your personal injury compensation claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline, or contact a firm of specialist injury solicitors in Plumpton, for example.

Injuries in rail accidents

If you are injured in any way while travelling by train, you may be able to make a personal compensation claim against the operator. If two trains collide and you are injured, you would probably be able to prove that you were not responsible for the accident, and therefore, you would be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.

If you slipped and broke a limb in the subsequent fall, because liquid or food that had been spilled onto the floor had not been cleaned up, you may be able to prove that your injury was caused by the negligence of the staff on the train, for example.
