Negligence Lawyers in Rishton


Negligence lawyers in Rishton and accidents on public transport 

UK public transport operators take health and safety very seriously and usually take all the precautions they can to ensure the safety of their passengers. Just sometimes though, that is not enough, accidents happen and passengers are injured as a result. If you are injured on public transport, in an accident that was not your fault, you should speak to negligence lawyers in Rishton about making a personal injury claim.

One of many negligence lawyers in Rishton talks about bus and coach accidents 

Accidents with buses and coaches do not always involve another vehicle.  If a driver is going to fast and has to suddenly slam on his brakes, passengers can be thrown about, particularly if they are standing, and may be injured. They could take a bend too quickly, lose control and the bus end up in a ditch. There is also the situation where it was not your driver’s fault at all, but as a passenger it is not your fault either and you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim.

Accidents on trains and trams 

The early warning systems and safety features built into them means that these days major crashes on trains and trams are rare. An accident on one of these is more likely to be because of a faulty door that traps you, faulty racking that falls on you or even food poisoning from their food.  However if you are the blameless victim of an accident on a train or tram, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim.

Accidents on planes and ships 

Accidents happen on planes and ships all the time. On a plane, the air-hostess could spill a boiling coffee and scald you or they could leave something in the walkway that you trip up.  On board a ship, there could be faulty equipment that causes you harm or a spillage not cleaned up that causes you to slip over and hurt yourself.  The main difference between these and other personal injury claims is that the time limit for filing your claim is two years, not three.

The things to claim for in a public transport injury claim 

Public transport accident claims are like any other personal injury claim and you can claim exactly the same things, any costs or losses that are a direct result of the accident.  This is apart from compensation for your pain and suffering, and could include:

  • Loss of earnings
  • Travel costs
  • Medical expenses
  • Care costs
  • Childcare
