    How much compensation for whiplash on a bus?


    There are few injuries that are more painful and cause more discomfort than whiplash, and this is particularly pertinent when you consider that it is also a relatively common result of a road traffic collision.

    Whiplash is a neck injury which results from a jerking or jolting movement of your neck. The most common example of this type of movement comes from a car crash where you are thrown forward in your seat and then sprung back again by your seatbelt. With whiplash being both a painful and a common injury therefore, it does often form the basis of personal injury compensation claims.

    This article will discuss and answer a number of common questions regarding compensation claims for whiplash. If you’ve been injured on public transport then you might be asking how much compensation for whiplash on a bus?

    When can you claim compensation for whiplash?

    The law states that if you are injured or fall ill and somebody else was to blame, you are entitled to seek compensation to account for the physical, emotional and financial hardships that you have encountered.

    This clearly applies for a whiplash injury, if the accident that caused it was somebody else’s fault. However, there is also one other factor to consider regarding when you can claim for whiplash. There is a period of three years from the incident in question in which you can claim, and after this time has passed then you can no longer begin claims proceedings.

    How much compensation for whiplash on a bus?

    Whilst the question of how much compensation for whiplash on a bus is an important one and is one that whiplash victims are very keen to know the answer to, there is unfortunately no simple and easy answer.

    Indeed, when it comes to the question of how much compensation do you get for whiplash on a bus, the answer is different for each individual case. This is due to the fact that the severity of whiplash, the circumstances of the accident that caused it and the degree of culpability of the guilty party can all differ. These factors all have an effect on the amount of compensation you could be awarded.
