Accidents happen in all kinds of locations. Some of them are down to our own fault – perhaps we were not paying proper attention to what we were doing, or where we were putting our feet, for example. However, some accidents occur because people are unlucky enough to be in the wrong place, and they are hurt because of something someone else does. If this sounds familiar to you, it may be because you were injured in an accident – perhaps on the roads, or at work, or while out shopping or doing something else in your leisure time. What sounds familiar to you here?
Accidents on buses
Many people choose not to drive to work because of the traffic. Instead, they use local bus services – sometimes more than one – to get from home to work each day. It gives them time to relax while travelling, perhaps to read or listen to music, and let someone else get on with the driving for once. All bus drivers are trained to the highest standards and provide the safest of experiences and services for passengers to enjoy each day.
Accidents involving buses are uncommon, but if one does happen, it may mean you incur injuries. Seatbelts are not worn on buses, so if the vehicle stops suddenly, you may be thrown to the floor or thrown forwards, sustaining facial injuries or other injuries caused in a fall. If the driver was not driving safely, or if another driver crashed into the bus, it could leave you open to make a claim against the negligent party if you were hurt during the incident.
