The Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety (PACTS) is a UK registered charity which aims to ‘protect human life through the promotion of transport safety for the public benefit.’ It advises members of the House of Lords and House of Commons on road, rail and air safety and identifies solutions to transport safety problems, looking at aspects such as effectiveness, cost and achievability.
PACTS has four main functions; these are:
- Promoting information on safety using seminars, conferences, publications and the Westminster Lecture on Public Safety
- Providing parliamentarians with an independent advisory service relating to transport safety
- Lobbying and persuading and promoting solutions to transport safety problems
- Responding to government, public and parliamentary proposals for safety improvements
The organisation has two conferences a year, usually held in March and October, plus the yearly Westminster Lecture on Transport Safety in December. PACTS is also a founding member of the Brussels-based European Transport Safety Council (ETSC).
If you have been involved in a road, rail or air accident, you can propose safety improvements to PACTS, or contact them for advice. You may also be eligible to claim compensation, by contacting a personal injury lawyer.
Injured on public transport
If you’ve been injured whilst on a plane or travelling on a train, you may be able to claim compensation from the airline or train company in question. It all depends whether anyone is to blame for your accident. For example, a train crash on a line which has not been properly maintained may mean the train company has been negligent. In cases like these, you have a good reason to claim compensation for your injuries, however you have suffered. Contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident and find out whether you could be eligible.Open Claim Calculator
