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.
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:
I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and can’t thank you enough for all the hard work that you put in. Everything went so smoothly and all I had to do was sign some papers and everything was taken care of. Anytime I had any concerns I knew I could call and my mind was always put at rest. You can never know how much this means to me and I am so grateful. If anything ever happened to me again then I would come straight to you.

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 this is you then you may also be able to make a coach accident claim.
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:
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.
