Have you been injured on public transport?
Although buses were once popular forms of transport for people without private vehicles, now many drivers are opting to use buses and trains instead of their own cars. As many areas now charge costly fees to park, using public transport can prove to be a more cost effective option.
In addition to this, the use of bus lanes can mean that you avoid heavy traffic and can make your journey far quicker than if you used your own car. With car tax and insurance seeming to rise every year, many people are giving up their cars altogether and are opting to use public transport.
Of course, public transport isn’t without its own set of problems and you can still be affected by heavy traffic when travelling by bus. If, for example, there is an unexpected road closure, the bus may be stuck in traffic or you may be forced to abandon your journey altogether.
Have you been affected by bus accidents in Fylde?
Although there are limits on how many people can travel on a bus at any one time, they can become somewhat overcrowded and you may find that you suffer bus accidents in Fylde whilst travelling by bus or train. If another passenger accidentally injures you whilst you’re on-board, you may be able to obtain compensation from them if you go on to make a claim.
Depending on the type of injuries you sustained, you may even be able to ask fellow passengers if they would be willing to provide evidence relating to the incident so that you’re able to prove who was responsible for the bus accident.
However, if the bus driver causes a road traffic accident or some form of collision, it may not be necessary to seek out witnesses. If you’re hurt because of the actions of the driver, you may need to make a claim against the transport company themselves.
If there have been multiple injures you may find that it’s relatively easy to obtain compensation, particularly if the driver admits their liability or acknowledges that that were responsible for the accident.
