Types of accidents
Any expert injury lawyers in Chipping Campden will know that there are a wide variety of ways in which you might be injured as a result of an accident involving a bus or coach.
You might be involved in a slip whilst at a bus or coach station. This could occur as the result of a spillage, a floor being cleaned that has not been appropriately signed with a hazard warning whilst it dried, or a leak in the room which has caused a puddle to form on the floor. On some surfaces such wet obstacles would cause no damage whatsoever, but on others, for examples marbled or tiled flooring, they can be exceptionally dangerous and can cause a serious slip and fall resulting in the potential for broken bones.
If you have been injured in such an incident then speak to expert injury lawyers in Chipping Campden today who be able to provide you with more information.

Due to poor lighting it is possible that you might not have been able to see a hazard on the floor of a bus, and you could trip whilst walking up the aisle to your seat. You might even have tripped on a raised paving stone or loose piece of flooring whilst at the station.
