In October 2013 a bus driver escaped from a burning bus in Leyton, luckily there were no passengers in the bus. Freak accidents such as this can happen anywhere at any time, without warning. If you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault in the last three years, you may be able to make an accident claim in Leyton and Wanstead or one from anywhere else in Britain if you can prove the accident was caused by another person.
Accident claim in Leyton and Wanstead
You can also make an accident claim in Leyton and Wanstead if you have been diagnosed, again in the last three years, with an illness that you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence, whether this is the negligence of your employer, a landlord (if you are a tenant) or of the owner of a restaurant (if you had food poisoning) or your local hospital trust if you developed MRSA after a stay in hospital, for example.
Accidents on buses
In September 2013 it was reported that a group of people had put members of the public at risk in a “cash-for-crash” fraud. A bus was involved in a staged minor collision with a car. This had resulted in personal injury compensation claims that were fraudulent as well as other claims. There has also been a case of people staging a crash between a bus and a car and then claiming (fraudulently) for whiplash. However, if you have been a passenger on a bus which had a genuine accident, then you could be eligible to make an injury claim in Leyton and Wanstead or one from any other place in the UK.
A passenger had a lucky escape when the bus the person was travelling on crashed into a house. The house owner was also unhurt, and the bus driver only sustained minor injuries. However had the passenger been injured, he or she could have made an injury claim in Leyton and Wanstead or elsewhere.
If you slip, trip or fall on a bus and are injured, you can also make a personal injury compensation claim, if the accident was caused by reckless driving, or the negligence of the bus driver. For example if you fell over an obstacle in the aisle which should not have been there, or if you were hit on the head because an object had not been properly stowed away, then you might be able to make a personal injury compensation claim against the bus company.
