Are you making a ‘no win, no fee’ West Lindsey claim after being hurt on a coach trip?
Although many people now rely on privately owned vehicles to get from one destination to another, coach travel is still a popular form of transport in the United Kingdom. Indeed, it can provide a cheaper way to travel and is often less expensive than taking other forms of public transport.
Due to the size of most modern coaches, drivers are restricted to certain speed limits. Whilst they may be capable of driving at speeds of 70-80 miles per hour, most companies request that their drivers do not exceed 60 miles per hour, unless an emergency requires them to do so. This can help to reduce the number of accidents which occur on the roads and is, therefore, beneficial to everyone.
Unfortunately, coaches are still involved in a number of road traffic accidents. As they tend to carry multiple passengers, any incident which involves a coach can be considered serious. In addition to this, the weight of a coach or minibus can cause a serious accident if it collides with another passenger vehicle. If, for example, a coach were to collide with a small passenger car, it is likely that the car, and its passengers, would take the brunt of the impact.
