Claiming after bus accidents in East Lindsey
If you were a passenger when the vehicle you were travelling in crashed, then it is unlikely that you were to blame. To make a claim for personal injury, you must be able to prove that you did not cause the accident. You also need to prove that someone else was responsible for the accident because of their negligence or recklessness.
It might be that the driver of the vehicle you were a passenger in was to blame for the accident, although it could have been the fault of another driver in a different vehicle. You have to file a claim against the person who caused the accident.
For example, if you were involved in a train or bus crash, you could reasonably expect to file a claim for injuries against the train’s operators. If another driver caused the accident then you would file a claim against that person. You have to establish who was at fault for the accident.
After bus accidents in East Lindsey or elsewhere, the police or other investigators have to ascertain why the accident happened. They ask for witnesses and finally, when they are satisfied that they know why and how the accident occurred, they compile an accident report.
The accident report should exonerate you from any blame and clearly state why and how the accident happened. This report is useful supporting evidence for a personal injury compensation claim.
Of course, if you make a claim for injuries, you will also need your medical records. You need these for two reasons
- they should show that you had medical treatment as soon as was possible after your accident; and
- they describe your injuries in detail.
If you didn’t have immediate medical treatment, this could negatively affect your claim.
A detailed description of your injuries is needed so that compensation amounts can be calculated if you have a successful claim.
