You may be wondering, “Can I claim for an injury on a bus tour?”, if you have sustained injuries while riding on an open-top bus or other vehicle during the last three years. Sightseeing tours on a bus travelling around major cities such as London and other landmarks are popular in the UK. What is usually a happy day out can turn sour if a serious accident occurs.
Stonehenge, Windsor Castle and Stratford Upon Avon are all popular destinations for a bus tour. These bus tours show travellers unique sights and buildings. Unfortunately, there are occasions when crashes or accidents can occur and your driver or other third party might be at fault. Road collisions can have devastating consequences, leading to serious injuries and fatalities. You could make a no win, no fee** claim if your bus driver was driving irresponsibly on unsafe or slippery roads and you crashed and sustained whiplash injuries.
Other claim examples for bus tour injuries include:
- Slips, trips and falls while getting on or off the bus. A driver may be liable if they began driving off when you were trying to climb aboard.
- You were involved in a bus tour accident due to poor maintenance of the vehicle. A flat tyre or faulty brakes could cause a collision. The bus company would be to blame if this happened.
- You could also claim if there was no seatbelts or other safety equipment that could have prevented impact injuries during a crash.
Evidence for your injury on a bus tour
Details about the bus you were on, such as the route it travelled and the time of the trip can help our solicitors to prove your injury on a bus tour. Our legal team can also use a copy of your bus tour ticket, photographs of the accident sites and identification details of the driver to maximise your compensation claim. This evidence will be supported by medical and financial documents such as receipts and hospital records. We will do everything we can to ensure your case is successful.
All claims must be made within three years of your injury on a bus tour and accident due to strict regulations. Our advisors will put you in touch with an expert solicitor right away after we have confirmed that we want to take on your case. A brighter future with secure finances could be just a phone call away. A claim will pay for all the costs you have begrudgingly paid out following an accident. It makes no sense for you to be funding medical bills if someone else was to blame. There are no forms to fill in so why not claim? It is risk-free and there is no hassle involved.
