Aeroplane accidents

Flying is considered one of the safest ways to travel. Thankfully, crashes are rare. However, you may still be injured while travelling on an aeroplane. This might happen due to –  

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Burns from drinks or food
  • Items falling from overhead lockers
  • Accidents while boarding or disembarking
  • Passing food trolleys

Airports and airlines both have a responsibility to prevent such accidents, so far as they reasonably can. If you suffer an injury while flying, it could be that mistakes were made. If so, you could make an aeroplane accident claim. 

In the tragic event that a fatal aeroplane crash does happen, the families of the deceased may also have grounds to make a claim. This ensures any dependents are properly provided for. 

You might wonder whether you have to make your claim abroad. Don’t worry – it is likely that you can bring a claim no matter where you were when the accident happened. Do not delay as there are strict time limits on bringing a claim.  

Train related accidents / injuries

Accidents can happen on board trains, at train stations and on train platforms. Typically, passengers are injured because of – 

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Falling objects
  • Scalds from food and drink
  • Collisions with other trains or objects
  • Faulty brakes
  • Driver error, such as driving too fast or running a red light
  • Damaged or defective items within the train

Railway workers may develop an injury or illness because of their working environment. This includes work-related injuries caused by electrocution or unsafe practices. 

Whether you are a passenger or an employee, your safety should be protected from the moment you step into the train station. If the train company fails to meet this legal obligation, you could have grounds for a claim.

Boat accidents

Boats come in all shapes and sizes. Sailing can be one of life’s pleasures. However, you should not be injured on any boat through avoidable mistakes. Whether you developed an illness while travelling on a cruise liner, or fell while travelling on a small commuter ferry, we can help you.

Common causes of boat accidents include –

  • Slips, trip and falls 
  • Items falling from overhead
  • Illness while travelling on a cruise liner 
  • Collisions with other vessels or obstacles
  • Falling overboard
  • Sailing in too hazardous conditions or areas
  • Damaged or defective equipment while boarding or being hit by items on board 

Making a personal injury claim

When you are injured as a passenger, it can be difficult to know what to do. First of all, you should seek medical attention. You come first. This makes sure that your injuries or illness are attended to. It also provides a written record of your symptoms. This will be helpful if you do later make a claim.

You should also ask to have the incident recorded in the company’s accident book. If you can, take photos of your injuries, the site of the accident and anything else that is relevant to the accident. It is really useful to get the names and contact details of any witnesses. 

Once you have done this, contact us at Serious Accident Solicitors Ltd for a completely free enquiry. It can often be hard to understand why your accident happened and to know if anyone is at fault. We can answer your questions and help you understand whether you can make a personal injury claim. 

If you are entitled to compensation, we can make a claim for you. The compensation you are awarded is intended to reflect –

  • Your pain and suffering
  • The cost of any care and assistance you need 
  • Your lost earnings
  • The cost of medical treatment and rehabilitation
  • Your travel expenses or other financial expenses

If you were injured while working on a boat, plane or train, you could be entitled to make an accident at work claim instead. We can make sure that you are properly compensated for your damages
