Looking for an injury solicitor in Oldham after a minibus accident?
Minibuses are regularly used to take sports teams to a matches and groups of friends on days out. Problems can arise if the buses are travelling at speed or are over-loaded.
Accidents can be caused by the driver of the mini-bus if they fail to spot hazards in the road or if they drive too fast. When minibuses are overloaded it can take considerable distances for them to come to a halt.

We may be able to show that the minibus was operating above its maximum safe weight and we may be able to get you some compensation.
