Injured on public transport
Have you been injured whilst taking the train or catching a bus? It might sound unlikely, but accidents can and do happen on public transport, and you don’t need to contact a local law firm in Hinckley and Bosworth to make a personal injury claim. Here are just a few examples of the types of accidents which could happen on public transport:
- Tripping on damaged steps on a bus or train
- Slipping on a wet floor on the bus or train
- Lacerations from damaged seats, windows or other items on the train or bus
- Injured in a collision
If you’ve been injured whilst getting a train or bus, the operators could be held liable for your injuries and ordered to pay you compensation. The best way to find out if you have a viable claim is to get in touch with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident, but definitely within three years, the deadline in which claims must be made.
