Hurt or injured in a bus accident in Neath?
We are constantly being encouraged to ditch our own vehicles in favour of public transport in order to protect the environment and to reduce traffic. But a bus accident in Neath can put dozens of people at risk of serious injury.
Many of us get the train or a bus to work every day, including a lot of people from Neath, and many of us are not able to get a seat because of the sheer number of people on board and the relative lack of seats.
This is nothing illegal, as all vehicles have a maximum capacity that exceeds the number of seated passengers. However, those forced to stand risk being thrown around the vehicle or carriage if it is involved in any kind of accident or takes evasive action to avoid one.
Who is eligible to claim for a bus accident in Neath?
You don’t even have to be on board the vehicle to be able to claim compensation for a public transport accident or bus accident in Neath. Cyclists could be able to pursue a claim if they are hit by the bus while riding alongside or if the mirrors catch them while riding along any of the roads or cycle lanes that run parallel to the buses.
For those on board, it’s especially dangerous if you aren’t fortunate enough to get a seat – as we have already mentioned. You risk being thrown to the floor if you are not prepared for the driver having to apply the brakes sharply, or to be knocked down the steps of a double decker bus if you are yet to take a seat when the driver is involved in an accident.
