Being injured in a bus accident in South Ribble is something that may never cross your mind when you are travelling by tram, train, bus, coach, taxi, plane or any other form of public transport in the UK.
However, the risks are very real and being injured in such a scenario can have serious repercussions on your day to day life.
Accident Advice Helpline believe that if you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident on public transport that was not your fault, you are entitled to compensation for the injuries that you sustain as a result.
Examples of public transport accidents
Accidents at stations – The maintenance of train, bus and tram stations is incredibly important. Those responsible for commuter safety must take their job seriously. If they fail to do so and you are injured by a trip over a loose piece of flooring, a falling light fixing or any other reason, they must be held to account for what they have done.
Bus crashes – If your bus driver is driving recklessly and causes an accident, you could sustain serious injuries. Such actions should not go unpunished, a message must be sent to ensure that these people do not repeat these mistakes in the future.
Even if the bus does not crash, due to the lack of seatbelts in most buses, your driver must be very careful. If they take a corner at high speed it could result in you being thrown from your seat and hitting your head, causing serious injury.
Taxi crashes – When you get into a taxi, you put your faith in the driver. If the driver does not return this respect and causes a crash in which you are seriously injured, you are entitled to claim against them.
