No win no fee in Dover
Any type of strike by public transport workers can mean major disruption for anybody planning to travel in the affected area. Not only will those who want to use the transport in question suffer, but also those who are using other ways to get about. People who would want to use the underground during a Tube strike might take to their cars or the bus network, for instance. Regardless of which side of the political divide you fall on, it’s important to acknowledge that workers should be able to withdraw their labour as part of an effort to object to planned changes to their terms and conditions or pay.
Often during a public transport strike, management will attempt to run some sort of skeleton service with staff members who have refused to walk out. Management are often called in to perform frontline roles, although this is often little more than a PR exercise. Some might say that this is unwise. An understaffed travel network clogged with users who have little information about what services are actually running could, in some situations, actually be dangerous. There may even be a chance of a passenger being injured in an accident that was not their fault in the ensuing chaos. If you were to suffer such an unfortunate fate, there will be a chance that you might be able to use the services of a decent 100% no win no fee Dover solicitor to take personal injury action.
Public transport strikes and no win no fee Dover solicitors
Imagine the scenario; you’re trying to cross London from the south to get a train from Liverpool Street station to Stansted Airport in time for a flight. You haven’t been keeping your eye on the news lately and find that when you arrive at Victoria station, tube workers have walked out. There is a service running, but few trains are operating and those that are seem to be packed. You notice that there are very few staff in station ticket halls, manning the barriers or on platforms. In the rush to make it down an escalator, you are knocked to the floor after being jostled around by the sheer number of people trying to get to their destination. In the process, you suffer a nasty head injury that requires hospital treatment. You need to take a not inconsiderable amount of time off work to convalesce.
If a 100% no win no fee Dover solicitor such as Accident Advice Helpline could prove that the management of London Underground where negligent in allowing the system to become overcrowded as a consequence of understaffing, you could be in line for a pretty decent personal injury compensation pay-out.
