    Bus driver injury advice

    Accidents, resulting in injury do happen when your occupation is that of a bus driver. At times like this the driver should seek bus driver injury advice.

    Why is bus driver injury advice important?

    If you are a bus driver and are injured while carrying out your duties, it could lead to, at the very least, a temporary loss of earnings while you recover. This will inevitably put a heavy strain on household finances, not helped by additional costs such as prescription charges, travel to and from medical appointments and treatment not covered by the NHS.

    In serious cases you may be out of work for an extended period of time, or in serious cases may be unable to return to work at all. This can put an intolerable strain on you and your family. By seeking bus driver injury advice you will be able to discover whether or not you can make a claim for compensation.

    Where to seek advice

    For bus driver injury advice to be of any value it has to be accurate, which means you should always contact solicitors who specialise in personal injury cases. If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, or been assaulted by a passenger, this type of injury advice is invaluable.
