Coaches drivers are trained professionals, however, that does not prevent them being involved in accidents. Coach driver injury advice is available from Accident Advice Helpline if you have been unfortunate enough to have suffered an accident that led to you being injured.
Where to find advice
The best people to give you advice about your coach driver injury are experienced personal injury solicitors who are skilled in dealing with these cases. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we employ a team of solicitors with the expertise to advise you on the options regarding your coach driving accident.
In order to be able to make a claim following your injury you should not have been responsible for the incident and the person or persons who were to blame will also need to be identified. Not every case is clear cut, so even if there is any doubt concerning whether you are to blame or not, it is still worth seeking coach driver injury advice.
What our solicitors need to know
In order for our personal injury claim solicitors to advise you, they will need to know as much about the accident and your injuries as possible.
While your own personal recollections of the incident are important, we also need third party information from anyone who witnessed the incident and CCTV footage from inside the coach or from roadside cameras. The statement from the police officer leading the investigation will form a critical piece of evidence.
From all of this information we will be able to advise you on how best to proceed with your coach driver injury claim, if we believe you have a strong enough case. If you decide to proceed with your claim, details of your injuries could be crucial in helping a court decide the amount of compensation awarded.
If you have not already had a doctor examine and treat your injuries, we will advise you to see one as soon as possible. His or her medical report will provide vital evidence regarding the extent of your injuries.
A key component of any injury claim is the financial loss suffered. If you have been forced to take time off work recovering, you will have lost wages, including overtime. You will also have incurred additional expenses, such as the cost of prescriptions, travelling to and from medical appointments and possibly for additional help and care.
One of the experienced team of solicitors employed by Accident Advice Helpline will be pleased to advise you on the records you need to provide. They include a note of wages lost and receipts of any additional expenses relating to your coach driver injury.
How much will it cost?
Many people think twice about making personal injury claims because they are not covered by legal aid and legal costs can be high. Here at Accident Advice Helpline our solicitors work on a no win no fee* basis. In other words, if after giving you coach driver injury advice, we agree to take your case, you will not have to pay anything up front.
