What Are the Most Common Reasons for Tram Injuries in the UK?
In most cases, tram injuries are the result of passenger or pedestrian negligence rather than the tram driver’s or operators. However, there are instances where you could suffer an injury that wasn’t your fault, either due to the driver’s negligence, or a lack of care in maintaining the tram lines, vehicles, stations or equipment. It is possible, for example, that vehicle’s can malfunction, their breaks stop working or for doors to close on your limbs as you’re entering/exiting the tram.
What Kinds of Injuries Are Common Following Tram Accidents?
There are many kinds of injuries you could suffer after a tram accident. These can include anything from broken limbs, head injuries and crushing injuries which may result in amputation or loss of feeling. In the worst cases, these injuries can cause long-term health problems, including loss of mobility, brain damage and more. Here at Tylers, we can help you to make tram accident compensation claims following any injury you’ve suffered.

I’ve Been Hit by a Tram – Can I Make a Claim for Compensation?
If you’ve been hit by a tram, that doesn’t mean you are automatically entitled to make a claim. For example, if you stepped in front of a tram because you were distracted, or on your phone, you may not be able to make a claim for compensation. However, if you were impacted because the driver wasn’t paying attention or the tram’s brakes stopped working, you may be entitled to compensation.

Slips, Trips & Falls on A Tram Compensation Amounts
Slips, trips and falls are some of the most common kinds of accidents in the UK. There are plenty of opportunities to slip, trip or fall while using a tramline. For example, you could easily trip while entering or exiting a tram or walking on a tramline platform which hasn’t been correctly maintained. You could also slip on an unmarked wet surface or fall due to a sudden stop or jolt while riding the tram.

Hit by a Tram Compensation Amounts
If you’ve been hit by a tram and it wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Depending on the tram’s speed and where it hits you, may get away with minor injuries, including bruises and possible abrasions after being knocked to the ground. However, in some cases, being hit by a tram can lead to brain damage, loss of mobility or even wrongful death.
Up to £307,000
Crushing Injuries Compensation Amounts
Tram doors are, normally, equipped with a sensor which prevents them from closing when obstructions are detected. However, if these sensors are faulty – or you’re riding in a tram without these sensors – and a door crushes you may be entitled to claim compensation. You would need to prove that there is something wrong with the tram, or that the door closed with no warning. You can claim for crushing injuries to the head, chest, limbs or other parts of your body.
Up to £131,620
Head Injuries Caused by Tram Accidents Compensation Amounts
Tram accidents can often cause head injuries, whether while riding the tram or due to an incident on the tram station. Whatever the reason, if you’ve suffered a head injury, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Head injuries can often cause long-term brain damage or long-term facial injuries which can have an impact on your mental capacity or psychological state respectively. Whatever kind of head injury you’ve suffered due to a tram accident, Tylers Solicitors is here for you.
