Rail accident claims

Metrorail is responsible for transporting thousands of commuters on a daily basis, making them liable in the event of injury or a Metrorail accident. Many innocent passengers are injured or lose loved ones in rail accidents every year. This can occur while riding, boarding or disembarking a train (or similar mode of transport), and can be as the result of a collision, derailment, fall, strike, or fire. Simpson’s specific rail accident expertise means we can provide a detailed explanation of your rights, and work with you to lodge and if necessary, litigate your claim.
If you have a legitimate claim, our no win, no fee promise, means that you won’t pay a penny if your claim isn’t successful.

WHEN DO I HAVE A CLAIM?

You will have to be able to show negligence on the part of the railway operator/service provider. Any injury sustained while on a train or at a station, can lead to a claim.

You will have up to 3 years from the date of the incident and may claim if you:
  • Are injured in a railway accident
  • Are a dependent of a deceased victim of a railway accident
  • Fall during boarding or disembarking or as a result of being pushed out of the train
  • Fall while on railway property
WHAT CAN I CLAIM FOR?
  • Hospital expenses
  • Future medical expenses
  • General damages for loss, pain and suffering
  • Current and future loss of earnings
If you were a dependent of someone who died as a result of a rail accident, you may also claim for damages and loss of income, as well as pain and suffering.
