The village of Leicester Forest East gets its name from the ancient Leicester Forest, rather than from the city of Leicester. If you live in the village you may not be able to find a firm of injury solicitors in Leicester Forest East if you want to make a personal injury compensation claim for any reason.

Accidents on buses
On December 28th 2013, a bus burst into flames at St Margaret’s bus station in Leicester. It seems there was an electrical fault in the engine. Bus services were temporarily disrupted while firefighters tackled the blaze. Luckily no one was injured.
On 20th December a bus crashed into a tree in London and left two people in a critical condition. The bus driver had swerved to avoid a collision with another vehicle. Although such crashes are rare, they can happen, and if you are injured in an accident such as this, you may be eligible to file a personal injury compensation claim, as it would be unlikely you were to blame for the accident, unless you were having a conversation with the driver at the time.
If a bus driver drives in a reckless manner and you fall in the aisle and are injured, you could also have grounds for making a claim against the bus company. If you fall over an obstacle in the aisle which should have been placed securely in a luggage rack, you may also be able to make a personal injury compensation claim. The same is true if you are hit by an object falling from an overhead rack.
