About train accidents

Thousands of people use the UK’s train network every day. While the majority of these journeys go without a hitch, accidents can still happen - and the speed and weight of the vehicles involved means those hurt are often left with severe and life-threatening injuries.

Common types of accidents that can happen involving a train include:

  • Crashes or derailment
  • Slips and trips caused by spillages or litter
  • Burns or scalds from the spillage of hot drinks
  • Insecure luggage falling onto you
  • Slipping or tripping on the platform
  • Being hit by a train

If you’ve been involved in an accident on a train, you may have been left with serious injuries. To claim compensation for your injuries, any distress you have been caused, as well as any financial outlays you have made as a result of your injury, get in touch with us.  At YouClaim, we have years of dealing with injuries of every nature and can help you make a claim for yours.

Types of injuries

Common injuries sustained in train accidents include broken bones, head injuries, fractures and whiplash. Because of the nature of some incidents involving trains, there is scope for much more serious injury to occur, such as paralysis, brain damage and even severed limbs. In the most extreme cases, injuries connected to a train accident can prove fatal. 

If a loved one has sadly died as a result of an accident that wasn’t their fault that either happened on or involved a train, you can make a claim for compensation. Our advisors will handle your case with the utmost sensitivity and help you to achieve a resolution following on from such a tragic event.  

Who is responsible?

There are currently nearly 30 train operating companies in Great Britain today, covering the length and breadth of the country. In addition to these train operating companies, Network Rail and other companies are responsible for maintenance of various stations and parts of infrastructure that make up the nation’s railway. 

This means that establishing responsibility for an accident can be challenging and is best dealt with by a skilled lawyer. Ultimately, all passengers and employees should be protected from harm, with staff being given suitable training to find and deal with problems appropriately, in order to prevent accidents from occurring.

If you have suffered an injury due to the negligence of either a rail or tube company, driver, operator or staff member, you will be able to make a claim for compensation.
