There are any number of different types of injuries that could be sustained from a public transport accident. But no matter what these injuries are, as long as they came about because someone other than the injury victim was to blame, that victim could be entitled to a significant sum of compensation. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, our purpose is to help people to secure that compensation.
The most common cause of injuries that could be sustained from a public transport accident
The most common causes of injuries that could be sustained from a public transport accident are collisions with other vehicles, or other objects like bridgework, or by being thrown out of your seat if the vehicle in question has to swerve violently or brake suddenly. If the cause of such an incident is down to the driver of the public transport vehicle, that driver could be seen as being either careless or negligent.
It is up to public transport companies to ensure that the drivers of their vehicles are suitable candidates for bearing the responsibility of their passengers’ safety, and that they are properly trained to do so. Any failure in this respect that might result in injuries that could be sustained from a public transport accident, which would clearly have to be blamed on that particular public transport company
