It is quite common for passengers travelling by rail to be involved in an incident/accident causing injury on a train or tram. These accidents can happen in a number of different ways and such accidents do not necessarily arise from the collision of a train itself but rather from circumstances such as objects on trains which cause a hazard, wet floors, incidents involving other passengers or staff and in a variety of other circumstances.
Thankfully train accidents are very uncommon in this jurisdiction but train accidents can happen and we have had a number of accidents involving the Luas since its arrival to this jurisdiction.
If you have been involved in an accident on a train through no fault of your own then you may be entitled to claim train accident compensation in respect of your injuries.
