Rail and Train Accident Claims
Our personal injury solicitors are experts in rail accident claims. Our lawyers have successfully pursued many personal injury claims as a result of train crashes including the train accidents at Clapham, Southall, Ladbroke Grove and Potters Bar (read the latest BBC news on the Potters Bar inquest here).
Personal injury claims
We recognise that for the survivors of such accidents the injuries will be both physical and psychological. We know that both are extremely important and we can help to make sure that you are getting the proper care. We have a team of specialist medico-legal experts who are well versed in dealing with the injuries that can follow such accidents.
The personal injury claim made after 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 often have a life-altering affect.
We act on a 'no win, no fee' basis and will ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your:
- any financial losses, such as a loss of income
- ongoing care
Train accidents can have disastrous outcomes, and there are often fatalities. We have represented the families of those who have died in a train accident. The family of the deceased can sue for emotional and financial suffering caused by the death of a loved one. Emotional suffering can include trauma and shock.
You can also sue for any financial losses that have resulted from the death of their loved one. For example, if the person killed is the sole employed member of the household, you can claim compensation for the lost earnings.
