    Injuries you could sustain on a bus

    Injuries you could sustain on a bus

    Buses are a convenient, affordable way to get from A to B. Whether you take a bus to work and back every day, or simply rely on buses to get around your city on the weekends, chances are that your personal safety isn’t foremost in your mind when you’re travelling on the bus. Whilst most buses are generally safe, you’re putting your safety in the hands of the driver – and you could be injured if you’re involved in an accident on a bus. Claiming personal injury compensation after your accident may be possible if somebody else is at fault – why not take the 30-second test on Accident Advice Helpline’s website right now, and see how much you could be entitled to claim?

    What injuries have you suffered?

    Injuries you could sustain on a bus could impact your working life, and your personal life too. You could sustain minor injuries such as cuts and bruises if the driver brakes suddenly and you are flung forwards in your seat. A trip in the aisle of the bus, on damaged flooring, could leave you with a sprained or broken ankle – or even a head injury, if you hit your head as you fall. If the driver falls asleep at the wheel and the bus is involved in a collision with another vehicle or objects, you could suffer serious injuries such as:

    • Lacerations to your arms, legs, body and face – for example from broken glass and debris
    • Broken bones
    • Head injuries such as concussion or a brain injury
    • Facial and eye injuries
    • Crush injuries, if you are trapped in the wreckage
    • Burn injuries, if the bus catches fire and you are trapped

    Some of these injuries could have a profound impact on the rest of your life – for example burn injuries could leave you scarred, affecting your confidence and future relationships. A serious brain injury can affect your mood and personality, making it impossible for you to get a job in future.

    Should you make a claim for compensation?

    Absolutely. You’re entitled to claim personal injury compensation if somebody else – such as the driver of the bus – is responsible for your accident and injuries. Our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, which means even if you have been affected financially after your accident, you can afford to make a claim. Give Accident Advice Helpline a call on 0800 689 0500 and find out if you’re eligible to claim compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
