The number of individuals or groups of passengers making public transport claims for compensation is actually quite small, despite the fact that buses and trains form the backbone of the transportation infrastructure in the UK. The populations of towns and cities, especially, rely on public transport to get around. If a public transport vehicle is involved in an accident, it is possible that at least some of its passengers will require medical treatment; it could be for anything, from a minor scratch to a life-threatening injury. If you and your fellow passengers have sustained injuries in such a situation you may all be entitled to compensation by making public transport claims. After all, it is highly unlikely that any of you would have had anything to do with causing the accident.
One of the most important things to consider when making public transport claims or personal injury claims in general, for that matter, is that it needs to be proven beyond reasonable doubt, perhaps in a court of law, that the injuries you have suffered was not your fault, but that of the person or persons in charge of the vehicle. In order to accomplish that, we strongly advise you to seek legal representation and take advice from lawyers who specialise the area of the law relating to personal injury claims. In such a situation we suggest that you get in touch with a company that has a thorough knowledge of personal injury claims and which employs its own team of in house lawyers. At Accident Advice Helpline our team of specialist solicitors have advised and represented numerous individuals in such situations. Our company has been in operation for over a decade and during that period of time we have established ourselves as one of the leading lights in the industry.
UK law makes it clear that if an individual is injured due to the negligence of another then he or she is entitled to compensation. The same law applies to public transport claims; however, before taking legal advice it will be extremely helpful if you can provide us with as much information as possible regarding what exactly happened; the time and date of the accident; contact details of the person or persons you believe was responsible and photographs of the scene of the accident. The more information you are able to provide the stronger the case we will be able to build on your behalf. Once all these details have been handed over to the solicitor allocated to you by Accident Advice Helpline we will start the process of preparing your claim.
We are proud of the fact that Accident Advice Helpline has been successful in helping many our customers make public transport claims against the individuals or companies responsible for causing their injuries. Remember, you should commence legal proceedings as soon as possible after your accident and we have staff on duty around the clock, so whatever time of the day or night you can be sure someone is available to provide assistance.
