Bus Passenger Claims
Bus passengers can often suffer an injury through no fault of their own.
Although accidents involving buses are not as frequent as other types of road accidents, the sadness is, if these types of vehicle crash it can result in a large number of casualties.
Bus companies have a duty to ensure their passengers safety while travelling on one of their buses. If this duty has been neglected and you have been injured on a bus you could claim compensation.
Compensation for bus passengers
Travelling by bus is generally a safe means of transport, but if you have been injured in a bus accident then you could claim bus accident compensation.
You could have been injured in a bus crash, after the bus you were travelling in colliding with a car, motorbike, lorry, van or minibus. Bus passengers have also suffered injuries in bus accidents that didn’t involve another vehicle, for example after a bus has crashed into a bridge, come off the road at speed or crashed into the hard shoulder.
No matter what type of bus accident, if you have been inured and it wasn’t your fault, then you can claim bus accident compensation. Contact one of our claim advisors to find out how much compensation you could claim.
Bus Accident Claim
Bus injuries can happen more often in less serious incidents. You can also claim compensation for injuries that you have sustained in less serious bus incidents.
Passengers on buses can be injured in a variety of ways:
- Injuries can be sustained after slipping or tripping on board a bus.
- Falling while getting on or off a bus.
- Injuries can be caused by sharp or faulty fixtures and fittings on a bus.
- Reckless driving by bus drivers can injury passengers.
If you, or one of your children, has been involved in a less serious incident on a bus – perhaps suffering injury by being thrown against the seat in front after the driver applied the brakes suddenly, then contact us to find out if you could claim compensation.
