Some of the personal injury claims in Perth that we get involved with here at Accident Advice Helpline are to do with injuries that have been sustained by people travelling on public transport and, in particular, buses. Buses are no particular stranger to road traffic accidents and even though these accidents rarely occur at speed, when passengers are standing or manoeuvring their way in and out of seats, even RTAs that take place at relatively low speeds can and do cause injuries.
Of course, as a fare paying passenger on a bus, it doesn’t matter whether it’s the driver of the bus or the driver of another vehicle or even a pedestrian stepping out into the road that causes the accident. As a passenger you are entirely blameless and are therefore entitled to financial compensation if you sustain an injury that requires medical attention.
Raising claims in Perth for injuries sustained in bus accidents
If you are one of the people raising claims in Perth for an injury sustained in a bus accident, you will need to gather as much information as you can regarding the incident. You should for example make a note of the time and date that the accident took place; where it was that the accident happened; the number of the bus you were riding on at the time and the name and ID number of the bus driver.
If the accident involved another vehicle, you will need to liaise closely with the bus operator to get the relevant details which you can then hand over to Accident Advice Helpline, if indeed we are your chosen injury claim solicitor. Don’t forget that we offer a no win no fee* guarantee on all claims and the fact that our services come highly recommended by the one and only Dame Esther Rantzen.
Getting a compensation award estimate from Accident Advice Helpline
You’ll probably want to know how much compensation you could be awarded for the injury you suffered. The quickest and simplest way of doing this is by using the HOW MUCH compensation calculator to take the 30-second test. You’ll find the calculator here on the Accident Advice Helpline website. You will need to answer four basic questions regarding the injury sustained and complete the exercise by leaving a note of your name and a contact telephone number. Once you’ve done this you will be shown an estimate of how much compensation you might get.
You’ll find a lot of information about launching personal injury claims here on our website, but if you can’t locate the specific information that you’re looking for, you can always chat to one of our experienced advisers in our customer service team by calling through on our free helpline service. This service is accessed free by calling 0800 689 0500 from any landline here in the UK. If you use a mobile instead, you will have to call a different number (0333 500 0993) and you may end up having to pay your call provider for the call.
Bus accidents often result in several people being injured, so it’s best to register your personal injury claim for compensation at the earliest opportunity. That being the case, why not get in touch with us today to start the ball rolling?
