Transport disasters

Leigh Day is known for its pioneering work in public transport disaster claims. Head of the team, Sally Moore, acted for 51 passengers injured in  the Paddington train crash. She also represented the widow of a man who was killed in the crash. She then played a role in the subsequent public inquiry and inquest process.

Sally also acted for victims of the train crash at Ufton Nervet, near Reading, and for eight British survivors of a train crash in Norway.

Other disasters

Serious injury partner Daniel Easton dealt with many of the injury claims following the Vauxhall helicopter crash, securing significant sums for people injured as helicopter debris fell from the sky, and for shock at witnessing the events.

Sally Moore represented both the families of the two women who died in the Dreamspace incident, when an inflatable art installation escaped from its moorings, tipping members of the public to the ground.

Daniel Easton acted on a 'pro bono' basis for several people who were injured in the 7th July London bombings, helping them to recover damages and benefits for serious injuries.

The firm's specialist personal injury lawyers have successfully recovered significant sums of compensation for people who have been injured in disasters such as the explosion at the fuel depot in Buncefield and for a man who was injured when his neighbour's house exploded following a gas leak.

We are expert in successfully recovering compensation for you if you have suffered serious injuries, including brain injuries, spinal injuries, or if you have undergone amputation following national or local disasters, major transport accidents, explosions or other serious life-threatening incidents.

Our serious injury lawyers are highly experienced in supporting clients who are attending inquests and inquiries.

When several people have been injured in a disaster they will often start legal action together in what is known as a group claim. We specialise in multi party legal actions arising from transport and other disasters that have happened both in this country and abroad.
