Have you been injured while travelling as a passenger on public transport? If so, there is a very high chance that you will be entitled to personal injury compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline is here to make sure you get the full amount you deserve.
Bus accident in Thurrock
If you have been injured in a bus accident in Thurrock, you should certainly make a claim. A lot of people worry that they are going to have their work cut out when it comes to this type of claim. They fear that the company is going to hire the best legal aid and wriggle their way out of it. However, this will not be the case.
If you have been hurt, and the accident was not your fault, you deserve compensation, and the company in question will realise this. They will have insurance in place to cover the costs, and they have a lot to lose if they do not accept responsibility, as their reputation could take a hit too. They don’t want this hassle; instead it is likely that they will want the case wrapped up as quickly and as easily as possible. This is good news, especially when you choose Accident Advice Helpline, as we aim to secure compensation over the phone whenever we can.
What you need to recognise is that all public transport operators have a duty of care to their customers. Therefore, they need to abide by all of the regulations that are in place to ensure they provide a safe environment for all of their customers. If they fail to do this, you will receive a payout to help you through the recovery and any other costs you have incurred.
General damages and special damages
Compensation is split into two parts. Firstly, you have general damages. This is the money you will receive to compensate you for your injuries. It will be calculated based on the medical report that has been put together by your doctor. Secondly, you have special damages. This is the money you will receive for all of the expenses you have encountered, including the likes of medication costs, loss of income, travel expenses, childcare costs, counselling expenses and much more. Please note that you will need proof to claim for these costs.
