A guide to train accident claims:
What is a train accident claim?
With so many people relying on train services for their daily commute, or as a form of travel up and down the country, it is important that train operators take all measures possible to ensure that passengers are kept safe and protected from accidents and injury.
When this does not happen, and negligence occurs, passengers can suffer from serious injuries as a result. In these cases, our no win no fee train accident solicitors are here to help our injured clients to claim financial compensation, all at no financial risk.
Falling objects and luggage on a train:
One of the biggest risks associated with travelling on a train which is fairly unique to public transport is the risk of falling objects and luggage from the overhead luggage carriers.
If you have been injured on a train due to insufficient, faulty, or inappropriate luggage storage facilities then you could be eligible to make a no win no fee train accident claim for any injuries that you have sustained.
Whether you’ve suffered from a neck injury, or a shoulder injury from falling luggage on a train, do not hesitate to reach out to our specialist train accident solicitors today for a free, confidential, no obligation consultation.
Slip, trip or fall train accident claims:
Whether there is a spillage on the train walkway, a misplaced drinks cart that has been left out on the train, or a faulty train seat or door leading to objects in the train walkway, there is always a risk of slips, trips and falls taking place while on a train.
When trains are in operation, the staff onboard the train have a duty of care to clean up any litter or discarded items, as well as mopping up any spillages on the train, in order to prevent any passengers from being injured as a result. If this does not happen, and you have been injured in a slip, trip or fall as a result while travelling on a train, then reach out to our no win no fee train accident solicitors as soon as possible for a free no obligation consultation about your potential claim.
Burn injuries from train food and drinks carts:
The food and drinks carts that are used on trains come with a number of risks. Whether the member of staff manning the cart spills hot water or a hot beverage on a passenger, or the motion of the train causes hot food or drink to fall off the cart and cause burns or scalds to a passenger, you could be able to make a no win no fee train accident claim for burn injuries caused by the train food and drinks carts.
Train crash accident claims:
Just like road traffic accident claims, and other forms of public transport, train crashes pose a large risk to passengers for serious injuries. If you have been involved in a train accident, a train crash, or unexpected harsh braking on train, and have been injured as a result, you could be eligible to make a no win no fee train accident claim for financial compensation with our specialist solicitors today.

Network rail injury claim:
As is the case with all companies and businesses, Network Rail have a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of their passengers and staff alike. This includes a large number of measures which must be taken, including the full training of staff, the timely fixing of any defective equipment or items on the train carriages which pose a risk to passengers, and a number of other responsibilities.
While this happens in the majority of cases, there are times when Network Rail fail to meet this duty of care, and people have been injured as a result. Between 2015 and 2019, Network rail paid out almost £1 million in financial compensation for around 300 passengers who were injured as a result of negligence on their behalf.
One of these stories that made headlines was a passenger who received a £28,000 payout after 'possibly slipping' on pigeon poo at Paddington station. The majority of the claims made are slip, trip and fall claims for spillages that had not been dealt with or cleaned up by rail staff in an adequate time.
How much is my train accident claim worth?
As with all injury claims, train accident claims are separated into general and special damages. The special damages value of your train accident claim will be calculated on an individual basis, depending on a number of factors, and how much you have been financially impacted by your train accident and injuries. For the general damages that cover the pain and suffering associated with your injuries, MG Legal have put together the below table outlining the compensation available for different injuries in a train accident claim:
How long do I have to make a train accident claim?
With all personal injury claims, including train accident claims, you have three years within which to make a train accident claim after the date of the accident. This time limit is subject to the 1980 Limitation Act.
If you were not aware of your injuries until a later date, then this date becomes known as the date of knowledge, and the three- year period starts instead from this date.
While three years may seem like a long time period within which to make a train accident claim, there is no way of knowing how long a particular claim will take to build, or how long it will take our solicitors to gather all of the medical and legal evidence needed for the claim. Our personal injury solicitors always advise
potential clients to contact us as soon as possible about making a train accident claim, so that we can get to work on building your claim as soon as possible.

What can I claim for in a train accident claim?

General damages- compensation for the pain and suffering associated with your injuries
Lost earnings- any financial impact of your train accident injuries, and any time off work
Medication costs- the value of any medication costs or medical bills related to the train accident
Travel costs- the value any travel to and from appointments for your injuries
