About Essex public transport
Essex is one of the busiest regions in the United Kingdom in terms of public transport. b
Buses, coaches, trains and tubes are abundant serving those in Essex who commute into Central London for work, and those who travel within Essex from the London borders out to the seaside. These modes of transport are vital to the people of Essex and, for the most part, they are safe. However, a bus or train accident in Essex is always a risk.
A lesser considered form of transport in Essex is ferry travel. Harwich port serves Holland and Denmark, and is a chosen port of call for those travelling for holidays in these countries and those coming into the UK for their vacations. Ferry travel is an effective and often charming way to travel, but it is not without its risks and injuries can occur if a ferry is poorly maintained.
You may think about the possibility of a ferry colliding with another boat or something else in the ocean, but there are dangers on the ferry itself that are rarely considered. If the ferry is badly maintained causing you to trip or fall, you could be left with a serious head injury that is not your fault, and in these circumstances you deserve to be compensated.
Head injury due to a train accident in Essex
If you are injured in a trip or fall due to loose flooring or a slippery surface on the ferry on which you are travelling, the head injury you sustain as a result can be severe.
The first thing you must remember if you fall victim to such a public transport accident in Essex is to immediately seek medical attention, due to risk of brain damage.
If you suffer from immediate or sporadic unconsciousness, seizures, difficulty with senses, such as loss of hearing or double vision, vomiting, bleeding or memory loss, these may be signs of possible brain damage. If the worst does not happen, and you do not suffer brain damage but still suffer a bad head wound, the repercussions of such an injury can still be incredibly debilitating and take a toll on you and those close to you.
You will need a great deal of support from those around you, and you will not be capable of the day-to-day tasks that are usually so simple for you. This isn’t only frustrating – it can also be financially costly if you are unable to work or need to seek extra help with tasks such as childminding. Accident Advice Helpline believes that you should be compensated when injured in a public transport accident, including a train accident, in Essex that is not your fault.
