    Claiming Compensation After an Accident Using Public Transport

    For many people, buses, trains and other forms of public transport are an essential part of their daily routine. It enables many people to get to work, the shops or their place of study each day. However, if you’ve had something unfortunate happen to you while using public transport, you could be eligible to claim compensation for your injuries.

    Crash or collision

    This is one of the most common ways in which people are injured using forms of public transport. Crashes and collisions on the road can be caused by a variety of different things, and errors on the part of the driver are just one of those reasons.

    If you’ve suffered injuries while on a bus or train due to a crash, you can contact an injury lawyer in Coleshill and find out whether you could claim compensation.

    Falling or slipping

    Apart from collisions, many people claim compensation each year because they have fallen or tripped whilst on the bus or train. Falls on the bus or train can be caused by many different things. One of the most common causes is because people get up before the vehicle has stopped. Usually, you will see there are signs on the bus telling passengers to stay seated until the bus has stopped. This is so that the company can avoid liability if people do fall while making their way to the door while the bus is still in motion.

    However, many people trip or fall on the bus because there is litter, spillages and other things on the floor of the bus which have made it dangerous. If this is the case, then the transport company will be liable since the vehicle hasn’t been cleaned properly and kept in a condition which will prevent injuries to passengers.
