Have you been injured whilst travelling on a bus? Call us here at Accident Advice Helpline and ask “Can I claim for an injury on a bus?” Members of the public who have suffered an injury while travelling on public transport may well be able to claim.
There are many reasons why people may suffer an injury on a bus. The driver may suddenly brake, forcing passengers (especially those standing) to fall, or the bus may be involved in a collision with another vehicle, leading to injuries for those on board.
Whatever the reason for the accident and injury on a bus, it could lead to pain and suffering, wages lost while off work recovering and additional expenses, such as medical costs. In extreme cases, it can have a major effect on the victim and their family’s lifestyle. This is why if you have suffered an injury on a bus, you should consider making a claim and consult with an experienced bus injury accident solicitor.

What our solicitors can do for you
When you pick up the phone and ask one of our advisers “can I claim for an injury on a bus?“, they will try to determine what actually happened. This is where third-party testimonies from witnesses are important. The chances of your case being successful will be significantly enhanced if you are able to provide contact details of witnesses.
The extent of the injuries you suffered will also be important, particularly if your claim is successful and you are awarded compensation. This is why we will ask your permission to contact your doctor for a copy of their medical report on your injuries.
A bus accident leading to injury does not cause only physical and psychological trauma, but often has a serious financial impact, too. One of the reasons for claiming for injury on a bus compensation is to recoup the money lost by having to take time off work recovering, as well as all the other expenses relating to medical treatment, prescription charges, and travel costs. Finally, it is also important you keep a note of any wages lost during recovery, and receipts for any additional expenditure.
