Did you know that 90% of traffic accidents on the UK’s roads are caused by driver negligence? From failing to look properly when pulling out at a junction to using your mobile phone behind the wheel, negligence could easily lead to a traffic collision at a bus station.
Bus stations are busy places, with multiple large vehicles coming and going at any given time. If you have been involved in a traffic collision at a bus station, whether as a pedestrian or the driver of another vehicle, you may be wondering why the accident happened and who is at fault.
There are usually one-way systems and procedures in place to prevent accidents from happening and keep members of the public safe, but a traffic collision at a bus station still has the potential to happen at any time.
If you believe your accident has been caused by a negligent driver, they could be held liable for your injuries. You’ll want to report your accident to the bus station manager, but you may also wish to consider making a claim for personal injury compensation. Even minor injuries sustained in a traffic collision could mean time off work to recover, impacting your family financially. Personal injury settlements will take this into account.
Don’t be daunted
It’s easy to be daunted by the prospect of making a personal injury claim and taking legal action against the individual or individuals responsible for your accident. But there’s no need to worry. Hire a reputable personal injury lawyer and they will handle every aspect of your claim on your behalf, keeping you updated.
It’s highly unlikely you’ll need to attend court, as most claims can be processed in full over the phone – and you shouldn’t feel guilty about claiming if somebody else’s negligent driving caused your accident.
