  • Overview

    Our specialist personal injury lawyer based at Thomson Snell & Passmore’s Tunbridge Wells and Dartford (Thames Gateway) offices, has secured a six figure settlement for a railway worker who suffered multiple injuries, including brain damage, when he was struck by a train when the rail lines were re-opened negligently.

    The claimant was a 31 year old man completing night-time maintenance works on the railway lines at the time of the accident.

    At around 5:20am the lines were re-opened but the works had not been completed and there were a number of the maintenance team, including the claimant, still working in close proximity to the track. The claimant was struck by a train as he continued his work. The claimant sustained severe injuries; he remained in hospital for 12 days and was unable to work for 9 months.

    The claimant sustained a severe head injury, including a fractured skull, damage to his facial bones, loss of consciousness and brain damage. As a result of the brain injury his personality changed and his ability to acquire new information was also impaired.

    The claimant also sustained multiple orthopaedic injuries including an open fracture to the right scapula (shoulder blade), rib fractures on both sides of his chest and fractures to his spine which caused him on-going discomfort. He also had multiple abrasions to his chest, shins and lacerations to his spleen.

    The team acted for the claimant and was able to obtain a six figure settlement to compensate him for his pain and suffering, as well as to pay for any future treatment he made need.
