Have you been injured whilst travelling by train?
Although train collisions can result in people sustaining catastrophic injuries, these types of incidents are fortunately very rare. Strict health and safety laws ensure that these types of accidents are kept to a minimum and people don’t often suffer harm in this way.
More common, however, are accidents which non-collision related incidents which occur whilst people are travelling by train. If the fixtures and fittings inside a carriage aren’t maintained, for example, they may become broken or dangerous. As a result, people could experience injuries whilst they’re travelling.
In order to allow people to bring luggage aboard, many carriages have luggage holders fitted above the seats. If these break or are unable to carry the requisite amount of weight, the luggage may fail and cause someone to suffer significant harm.
Following these types of incidents, it may be possible to make a claim for compensation. If you’ve suffered an injury whilst travelling and you weren’t at fault, you may want to consider making a no win no fee in Rickmansworth claim.
This enables you to obtain compensation for your injuries but ensures that you can take legal action in a cost-effective way.
