Every time you take a bus to work or school, you are placing your safety in the hands of the bus driver to get you to your destination safely. In certain circumstances, very often out of your own control, there are accidents on the road and you can be put at risk of suffering serious injury that can change your life. These injuries often come about after the carelessness or negligence of bus drivers or other drivers on the road. If you have suffered injuries in the last three years that weren’t your fault, you can claim compensation from these guilty third parties.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we are aware of the dangers involved with travelling and we are here to help you claim compensation for injuries suffered due to someone else’s reckless driving. We have over 16 years of experience as personal injury claims specialists and if you need to claim, we are here to help. If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, or whilst on a bus, information to take from a bus should include the following.
Information to take from a bus driver if you are injured
If your bus driver has not been taken to hospital, as is so often the case after bus accidents, try and get his name, phone number, home address and email address in order to investigate your claim. Taking photos of the accident is always a good idea too, as it can help with identifying who was in the wrong at the scene of the accident. Taking photographs from various angles is also advisable as it will further help those who weren’t present to establish an idea of what happened. It is important to remember, however, that seeking medical attention is more important than phone numbers or photographs. It’s imperative that you are treated for any wounds that you might have before you go around taking photos with your mobile phone. You can always follow up later with the bus company on who was driving the bus that day as it’s very likely other passengers will be interested too.
