    Negligent bus driver compensation claims


    Have you ever been injured on a bus journey? Being a passenger on a bus is completely unlike travelling in other smaller vehicles on the road. To begin with you don’t have a seat belt and people can be moving around inside the bus while it is being driven. Some people may also stand throughout the journey if the bus is particularly crowded on a busy route, or being operated at a busy time of day.

    As you can probably tell, this does increase the odds of one or more people having an accident if the bus driver should drive or brake in such a way as to cause a rapid deceleration or acceleration of the vehicle. Injuries such as whiplash and head injuries can be caused in these situations, not to mention many other minor or major injuries, depending on how bad the accident is.

    Most bus drivers have exceptionally good driving skills. If you suspect that a negligent bus driver has caused you to have an accident, then you should get professional advice. There may be evidence of that negligence that will help you claim compensation. It is always worth finding out more.

    What types of injuries can occur in bus accidents?

    We have mentioned a few of these already, but there are others. While there are no particularly sharp points or edges in the passenger area of the bus, there is not much room either. This means some injuries can be fractures, where a person is thrown against the back of the seat in front or against a pole or other part of the bus. This can be painful; if you experience this, you should always get checked out to determine whether you have bruising or a fracture.
