Coach accidents are often traumatic incidents with sometimes multiple injuries and even fatalities.
Whether you are travelling abroad or in the UK, you have a right to be kept safe while on UK transport. If you have suffered an injury during a coach accident and the blame was not yours then you could be able to pursue a compensation claim for your injuries.
The lawyers at First Personal Injury may be able to help you. Call us on 0800 808 9740 or get in touch with us online to find out if you could claim.
Possible Injuries After a Coach Accident
There is an almost endless list of possible injuries you could sustain when involved in any kind of road traffic accident and may be considering making coach accident claims for personal injury. However, there are some injuries which are more prominent if you have had a coach accident:
Psychological symptoms e.g. post-traumatic stress
Very caring, professional and efficient solicitors. Would highly recommend.
Unfortunately, it is also possible for one or even multiple fatalities during a coach crash, but this, of course, depends on the nature of the collision.
Pedestrians and other road users can also be injured as a result of a coach accident. If you have been injured as a pedestrian, driver or cyclist, you may also be able to make a coach accident claim.
Reasons For Coach Crash Accidents
Coach accidents are relatively rare and most drivers have been through thorough training to reach a high standard of road safety. Mistakes do happen though and some of the more common types are listed below:
A mechanical or technical problem with the coach
Poorly maintained road surfaces
A lack of adequate signage
Adverse weather conditions
Falling or slipping while on board the coach
In order for your claim to be successful, it needs to be proven that the fault of your accident was down to someone else’s negligence. This could be a mistake made by the driver, the coach company who did not check a fault with the mechanics of the coach, or even the council who did not repair a pothole in the road which led to the crash.
