    What to do if you’re injured on a bus

    Thousands of bus journeys are made across the entire country on a daily basis. While some people only use buses every now and then, others rely on them to make daily journeys to and from work, not to mention reaching other destinations as well.

    The good news is that safety regulations and rules make bus travel incredibly safe indeed. Drivers are well trained and experienced in driving vehicles of this size. To this end, there are few occasions when a bus will be involved in any kind of accident. As we all know, however, things like this can sometimes happen, and when they do, you could be one of the passengers to be injured on a bus.

    Who is at fault?

    While it is possible for an accident to happen because of other circumstances, rather than someone specific being to blame, this is quite rare. In many cases, someone will be at fault. If that person turns out to be the bus driver, you may potentially have a chance to make a claim against the driver for their actions.

    However, it could be that another driver caused the bus to crash in the first place, or drove into the bus itself. In this case, that person would be the person your potential claim would be aimed at if you were injured on a bus.
