    Injuries you could sustain in a bus station


    While there are bus stops dotted around roads, streets and shopping centres all over the country, there are certain areas where you’ll see bus stations as well. These tend to be terminuses where lots of bus routes start and end, and where lots of people will congregate to wait for the particular service they are looking for.

    When it comes to injuries you could sustain in a bus station, you may wonder what could go wrong. In truth, very little ever happens that results in a passenger being hurt in a bus station. Health and safety rules are very important in these situations, as lots of people will be milling around and there will be lots of large buses driving in and out of the station as well. Thankfully, these rules are followed for the majority of the time, with very few incidents ever being recorded.

    What if something did go wrong?

    There are potentially various injuries you could sustain in a bus station. For example, you could possibly have your foot run over by a bus if the areas the buses use and the pedestrian-safe areas are not clearly marked. You might be hit by a bus if someone is driving negligently and without due care and attention.

    Furthermore, you may experience other situations that do not involve buses at all. A good example of this would be a situation where you slipped over in oil that had not been cleared up or dealt with. Even if no one had cleaned it yet, a sign should be in place warning people to avoid the area.

    Could we help you?

    You may already be aware of how painful injuries can be when they are experienced in this type of setting. Thankfully, we don’t often hear from people who have been hurt in bus stations. However, if you have found yourself with just such an injury in the recent past – within the past three years, in this case – please do get in touch with us.
