Bus passenger compensation claims

When you travel on a bus you don’t have the luxury of wearing a seat belt. This means that if the bus driver should brake suddenly for any reason, you may end up sustaining an injury. In some cases the bus itself doesn’t have to be involved in an accident for you to be injured, and the same applies to other passengers too. For example let’s suppose you get up to move to the exit doors and the bus driver brakes suddenly instead of stopping smoothly, you may be unsteady on your feet anyway and this could cause you to have an accident. In other situations the bus driver might stop suddenly to prevent them from hitting someone or something else, possibly another vehicle. Even if you are seated someone else might lose their balance and fall on you, injuring you in the process.

Every year some people decide to claim for bus passenger compensation. They may have good proof that they were injured and therefore have the right to be compensated. While most bus drivers are excellent in their driving skills there is no telling what other road users might do.

Do you have a case to try for compensation?

If you have been injured in any way on a bus, you do have a right to try and claim bus passenger compensation. The best thing to do is to assess whether or not you can prove that negligence was to blame for the cause of the accident, whomever was negligent in your case.

This is where you should bring in a professional injury compensation lawyer, to see whether you do have a case or not. They will have the required experience to consider all the facts prior to deciding what to do next.
