Making a bus depot accident claim is easier than you think. There are many reasons why people are often uncertain about making a claim for compensation after an accident. They may feel that their injury is too minor, or that the process will be too complicated or costly, or that they do not deserve compensation. In fact, everybody has a legal right to pursue compensation if they are injured in an accident that is not their fault. If the injury was severe enough to require medical attention, then you may be entitled to compensation. Accident Advice Helpline is a law firm with over ten years’ experience in dealing with accident and injury claims. Our expert lawyers and solicitors operate on a no win, no fee* basis.
Reasons for claiming
You may have suffered a bus depot accident either as a member of the public or as an employee of the bus depot. Perhaps you were injured getting on to or disembarking from the bus or fell as the bus accelerated before you had the chance to get seated. As an employee, you could have been injured due to faulty or improperly maintained equipment, or the negligence of others. If you were not given proper health and safety training appropriate to the job you were required to do, this could also be cause for a compensation claim.
Other common causes of accidents at a bus depot include: tripping over luggage or bus depot equipment, slipping in puddles of water, scalding from hot drinks, or even being hit by a moving bus. If you have been unfortunate enough to suffer any of these accidents in the past three years through no fault of your own, then you could be entitled to claim for compensation.
Making a claim
If you were injured while working for the bus depot, then your claim should be covered by your company’s employer liability insurance. If your accident occurred while you were in a public bus depot as a passenger or visitor, then you will be covered by public liability insurance. Accident Advice Helpline operates a 24-hour free helpline to assist you in determining whether you have grounds for a claim, and advising you how to proceed.
