Minibuses can be extremely practical and useful when you need to transport a larger group of people somewhere. This could be on holiday, to an event or perhaps on a night out. While most journeys in minibuses will be completed safely, there have been incidents in the past where people have ended up being injured because someone else has done something wrong.
It is this type of situation where minibus accident compensation could be payable to those who have sustained injuries in the accident. Someone else must have been liable for causing the accident in the first place for this to be possible.
Can you tell if you could claim minibus accident compensation?
For this to be possible, you have to have been a passenger in a minibus, or even the driver. Someone else in another vehicle must have done something to cause the accident, and you must have received injuries as a result. Your injuries do not need to be severe, but they must have been bad enough to have sought medical attention. This will create a record of those injuries that will provide proof they occurred. Photographic evidence is also a good idea to have as it can help back up your claim.
