Have you been hurt whilst on public transport?
With more and more of us relying on public transport every day, there are calls for increased services. With many services regularly overcrowded, the current service can put people at risk of injury. If you’ve been hurt on public transport, your injuries will probably have occurred in one of three ways:
If you’re travelling on a bus, for example, and the vehicle is involved in a collision it could be the fault of the bus driver, or other road users. If the bus driver is at fault, the transport company many be liable for your injuries and, with help from a solicitor in Hornsea, you could make a compensation claim against them.
If another driver caused the incident, however, you may need to pursue them for compensation with help from an injnury solicitor in Hornsea.
If there is a fault with a bus or train it could result in the vehicle not working correctly. If for example, the brakes were to fail or a faulty indicator resulted in a collision, the travel company may be liable for any injuries which occurred as a result.
If you’re hurt because of a faulty vehicle, why not contact a solicitor in Hornsea to find out more about making a claim?
Although you may have experienced an injury whilst travelling on public transport, the transport company may not be responsible at all. If another passenger injured you, either intentionally or unintentionally, it may be them that you need to make a claim against with the help of an injury solicitor in Hornsea.
If you’ve been hurt and it wasn’t your fault, there’s a good chance that an injury solicitor in Hornsea will be able to assist you but you will need to prove that the injuries you experienced were caused by someone or something else.
