You may have seen bendy buses on the roads in various cities throughout the country. However the one thing you won’t want is to be in collision with a bendy bus. This could potentially happen if one cuts into your path if you are driving, or if you are a pedestrian and you are hit by one as you are walking along.
Thankfully such incidents are exceptionally rare. While we all know accidents can and do happen, it is heartening to know they are very rare and a collision with a bendy bus is unlikely to be in your future. However if it did happen you should consider whether negligence on the part of the driver (or someone else) caused it to happen.
How do you work out whether negligence was to blame?
The first thing you should do is to consider the circumstances of the accident. For example did you encroach into a bus lane when you should not have done so? In order to prove negligence on the part of the bus driver there should be evidence that they did something they should not have done (or neglected to do something they should have done). If the driver turned a corner too tightly and hit you as you stood on the pavement, this could potentially be negligent.
In cases like this it is important to seek professional legal advice so you know where you stand. Accident Advice Helpline provides such advice and many people have already used our no-obligation advice service to ensure they understand their legal situation.

Obviously if you have been in such an accident you will need medical help to determine whether you need treatment. It may take time to recover from any injuries you sustain because it could turn out to be quite difficult to cope with these injuries. It all depends on how badly you are hurt.
