Jill Greenfield, Head of Serious Injury

Contact us

Our personal injury solicitors are expert in rail accident claims. Our lawyers have successfully pursued personal injury claims resulting from train crashes, including train accidents at Clapham, Southall, Ladbroke Grove and Potters Bar. We also act for victims of the Croydon tram derailment. 

Personal injury claims

We recognise that for survivors of such accidents, injuries will be both physical and psychological. We understand that both are equally serious and can ensure you receive the right care. We have a team of specialist medico-legal experts well-versed in dealing with the injuries inflicted by such accidents.

A personal injury claim following a rail accident will depend on the intensity of the accident and the severity of the injuries that result. Injuries can include broken bones, brain and head injuries and spinal injuries, all of which can be life-altering.

We act on a No win no fee basis and will ensure that you receive the maximum compensation for:

  • injuries
  • financial losses, such as a loss of income
  • treatment
  • rehabilitation
  • ongoing care

Fatal claims

Serious train accidents often involve fatalities. We have represented the families of those who have died in a train accident. The family may sue for emotional and financial suffering caused by the death of a loved one. Emotional suffering can include trauma and shock.

You may also sue for financial losses resulting from the death of a loved one. For example, if the person killed is the sole employed member of the household, you may claim compensation for lost earnings.
