Thousands of people use buses to travel around the country every day. They can be a convenient and cheap alternative to travelling by car. Of course, many children travel to school on them as well. The majority of bus journeys are uneventful but sadly sometimes accidents can happen and the passengers on the bus are injured. Injuries range from mild discomfort to life-changing permanent disability. On top of all of this, many people find that they have financial issues to deal with. Many people decide to pursue a claim for bus accident compensation.

- Keep records of any money that you have had to spend relating to your bus accident compensation claim. Maybe you have lost money because you have not been able to work. May be you have had to pay for extras like childcare or travelling expenses to medical appointments.
- Do not worry that you will have to attend lots of meetings with lawyers. Most claims can be handled over the telephone and very few cases actually get to court.
