Many people drive to Ashton-under-Lyne for a day out, but several others will be arriving by coach. Coach journeys are considered to be a restful and relatively stress-free way of travelling, as you do not have to concentrate on the road and there are no worries about finding car parking spaces when you get there.
However, sometimes coach accidents can occur on the way to or from Ashton-under-Lyne, and people can get injured. This is when thoughts may turn to an accident lawyer in Ashton-under-Lyne to make a coach accident claim.
Making a coach accident claim with an accident lawyer in Ashton-under-Lyne
A coach accident claim would be made when the passengers (or driver) of a coach travelling to or from Ashton-under-Lyne are injured in an accident that was not their fault. They would be able to claim compensation from the person who was to blame.
The compensation is for the injury itself and as a general rule, it is the more serious injuries that receive the highest levels of compensation. The second part of the compensation claim is for the money that you have lost because you are injured. This may be loss of wages or it may be extra childcare bills.

Who do I make a coach claim against?
You make a claim from whoever was at fault for the accident. This may be the driver of another vehicle, if the accident was caused by their poor driving or lapse of concentration. If it was the driver of the coach that was at fault, you may be able to claim from them, or from the company that they work for.
If the accident was caused by a technical problem with the coach, then you may be able to claim from the coach operator. Your Accident Advice Helpline personal injury solicitor will be able to advise further. In practice, most claims are paid out of insurance policies. This may be a motor insurance policy or a public liability insurance policy.
