Heading for your local bus station, you’re probably in a hurry, thoughts of travel on your mind. We don’t often stop to think of the potential for accidents to occur at bus and train stations, but there is always the possibility that you could be injured in an accident at a bus station.
Injured bus station users could sustain broken bones, cuts and bruises, head or facial injuries – a bus station accident could even lead to a fatality. Of course, sometimes accidents happen, but if you have been hurt in an accident at a bus station which you believe to be someone else’s fault, you could claim personal injury compensation for your pain and suffering.
Injured bus station users will need to contact a personal injury lawyer to find out if they’re eligible to make a claim – beware though; a three-year time limit applies and if you miss the deadline, you could miss out on the opportunity to make a claim.
What happened to you?
Accidents have the potential to occur anywhere, at any time, and your personal injury lawyer will want to get to the bottom of what has happened. Here are a few examples of the types of accident which could occur at a bus station:
- Slip, trip or fall – in the station waiting area or whilst getting onto or off a bus
- Injured by sharp objects, such as a broken metal seat or sign
- Injured by objects falling from height, for example if building works are being carried out
- Struck by a bus or other vehicle
No matter how you have been injured, claiming personal injury compensation may be possible. You could receive a settlement to compensate you for your pain, suffering and financial losses – for example, if you have needed time off work to recover from your injuries.
