The former mining village of Beddau in south Wales lies just four miles from Pontypridd. Although it once thrives thanks to the Cwm Colliery, today the village is a commuter base for the surrounding area, with a regular bus service connecting Beddau to the nearby towns and villages. If you’ve been injured on your morning (or evening) commute then you make need the services of a personal injury solicitor. But due to its small size, finding a Beddau no-win, no-fee* solicitor can be a challenge.
That’s where Accident Advice Helpline comes to the rescue. With a team of experienced personal injury experts, we can help you get the compensation you deserve, and our professional lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee* basis, so you don’t have to worry about expensive legal fees.
Injured on public transport
Many of us use public transport such as buses on a daily basis and it’s fair to say that for the most part, taking a bus is a fairly safe way to get from A to B. But when things go wrong, you could be left seriously injured in an accident on a bus, and you might be considering making a Beddau no -win, no-fee* claim within three years of your accident. Here are a few examples of the types of injuries you could sustain on a bus:
- Collision injuries if the bus is involved in an accident – these could include broken bones, back injuries, head injuries and crush injuries
- Slip, trip and fall injuries – you could trip on a damaged step getting on or off the bus or fall if the bus brakes suddenly when you’re getting up
- Head injuries if you bump your head on a hand rail if the bus brakes suddenly
- Lacerations from damaged seats or windows on the bus
If you have been injured through no fault of your own, ask yourself who is to blame for your accident. It’s likely that the bus operator will be at fault, and you could make a personal injury claim for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
