Train accident personal injury


It’s true that Britain’s railways didn’t get off to the best of starts. When the Liverpool and Manchester line was opened all the way back in 1830, Stevenson’s Rocket managed to run over and kill William Huskisson, a local Member of Parliament.

Clearly things have changed, and high-profile incidents like those at Paddington in 1999 and Potters Bar three years later notwithstanding, there’s no safer way to travel in the UK. In the five years to February 2013, for example, there were no rail deaths from crashes, and, from 2003-2013 average death tolls are one about every other year.

Indeed, travel by rail is 1400 times safer than riding a motorbike, 20 times safer than travelling by car and 400 times safer than going somewhere by foot.

That’s not to say that accidents don’t happen – unfortunately, they do. In 2012-2013, for example, there were just under 300 major passenger injuries. The overwhelming majority of these train accident personal injury occurrences were due to slips, trips and falls. There were small numbers of other incidents involving things like on-board injuries and assaults. No-one was hurt as the result of a train crash, so all these figures show just how safe the UK’s rail network generally is.

You may not realise that if you experience a train accident personal injury and you were not to blame, and it happened less than three years ago, you can make a claim for the personal injury compensation to which you are legally entitled.
