When you’re visiting a bus station – whether it’s to meet a friend or family member or because you’re planning on travelling yourself – the last thing on your mind is the risk of accident and injury. But injuries at a bus station are not uncommon; there are a lot of vehicle and people in a fairly confined space, so there is the potential for accidents to happen if drivers and passengers are not careful.
You could be struck by a bus or other vehicle reversing, sustain an injury after a slip, trip or fall or even injure yourself on a sharp seat or sign edge. You may even sustain injuries at a bus station due to ongoing maintenance works. If you’ve been injured, complaining to the bus station should be your first step. You may also decide to make a claim for personal injury compensation – there’s a three-year time limit in place to do so, so it is important to act fairly quickly.
Don’t let your injuries at a bus station impact your journey or holiday; take action and claim the compensation you deserve if you feel that negligence has led to your injuries. Whether you’ve been struck by a bus or other vehicle and believe the driver was to blame or have sustained other injuries for which the bus station could be held liable, find out if you’re eligible to make a claim.
Making a claim – how hard is it?
The key to a successful personal injury claim is to hire a personal injury lawyer you can trust. Hire a reputable lawyer and they will work hard to gather evidence in support of your claim, so you get the compensation you deserve.
Ideally, you should look for lawyers offering a 100% no win, no fee service, so there are no upfront fees to worry about. It’s unlikely you’ll need to attend court as most claims can be processed over the phone and settlement agreed without the need for a court case.
