Accidents occurring on buses, trains and other public transport vehicles can often cause multiple injuries due to their passengers. Whilst the number of UK fatalities is decreasing in public transport, minor to serious injuries are still very common. If you have been involved in a public transport accident you may have the right to seek compensation for your injuries.
Bus related accidents can occur for a number of reasons. A bus might be involved in an accident with another road user, or passengers might be injured on a bus even if there’s no collision.
Occasionally, passengers sustain injuries as a result of irresponsible driving. You might bump your head or hit your arm on a railing or the seat in front of you. Alternatively, you may fall over on a bus and become injured. Sometimes, injuries on a bus can occur if a passenger slips on liquid spilt in the aisle.
If you were involved in a bus accident that wasn’t your fault you can claim against the individual responsible. This might be the driver of the bus or the driver of another vehicle involved in the accident.
Under government safety measures, bus companies and other public transport services are responsible for protecting their passengers. If they fail to comply with these measures and you become injured they have failed in their duty of care. As a result, you are entitled to seek compensation.
If you have a valid bus injury claim, you will be able to claim compensation for your injury. In addition, you may be able to recover any costs you have incurred as a result of your injury. These might include travel expenses, loss of earnings if you have had to take time off work or prescription costs.
