    Types of Accidents

    There are a wide number of ways in which you could be injured on, or indeed by, a bus.

    If you have been involved in an accident with a bus which was not your fault, then you might be entitled to make a no win no fee Wandsworth claim for the personal injury you have suffered.

    Types of accidents can include:

    • Slipping on a wet patch or in a puddle at the bus station or terminal.  Such spillages should be appropriately cleaned up, or at the very least signed with a cone or hazard warning to provide members of the public (or staff members) with a warning of the potential danger.  Failure to do this could result in an accident, and you having the right to make a no win no fee Wandsworth claim if you have been injured as a result.
    • Tripping on the bus itself.  You could fall as a result of tripping over a loose piece of flooring on the bus, or other hazard which should not have been there.
    • Lacerations caused by sharp objects present on a bus which should have been repaired, or covered up so as to prevent injury.
    • Road traffic collisions.  Buses, like any other vehicle on the road, can be involved in road traffic collisions.  If you have been a passenger on a bus which has been involved in a collision, then there is a good chance that you will be able to make a no win no fee Wandsworth claim if you have been injured as a result.  It does not matter whether the driver of the bus you were on was responsible for the accident, or if another road user was.
    • Accidents involving pedestrians.  When most people think of an accident involving a bus they usually imagine making a no win no fee Wandsworth claim as a result of being a passenger; however, it is a sad fact of life that occasionally pedestrians (and of course cyclists) can be injured as a result of a bus.  A bus driver may fail to indicate or stop, causing injury as a result.  They may even have failed to check their mirror to see a cyclist in the bike lane.  Such accidents can have catastrophic results.
