Have you had an accident on a train?
Public transport is something many thousands of us use everyday. And in doing so we expect that whilst using it we are safe. However there are times when accidents do occur through no fault of our own. To this end Accident Advice Helpline and our no win no fee Marylebone solicitors are on hand to help if you have suffered as the result of an accident on public transport.
While we acknowledge that every effort is made to ensure the number of accidents that occur on public transport is kept to a minimum they do still happen and if you have been unfortunate enough to suffer such then you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation. Hundreds of thousands of us use trains daily to commute to and from work and in doing so this leaves us exposed to the risk of an accident of someone else’s making.
The following are some of the accidents that can occur on a train:
- Tripping over items left in the aisles
- Sustaining head injuries due to a sudden stop
- Sustaining head injuries as a result of items falling from the overhead rack
It isn’t an exhaustive list by any stretch of the imagination but these are among the most common to occur while commuting on a train. Accident Advice Helpline and our no win no fee Marylebone solicitors have a wealth of experience and knowledge in dealing with just such accidents.
I had an accident on a train and it wasn’t my fault
If, while using a train to commute from A to B, you have sustained injuries as the result of an accident, you may be entitled to compensation. As with an employer in the workplace the service provider has a duty of care to make sure you are as safe as possible and a failure to do so can often result in accidents occurring. This is no more evident than when it comes to making sure that aisles are kept clear of other people’s belongings as well as ensuring that spillages are cleared up promptly.
