Are you making a passenger injury claim?
If you’ve been hurt while travelling, you may want to make a passenger injury claim and obtain compensation for the harm you’ve suffered. Although many claimants who make a passenger injury claim will have suffered injuries while travelling privately, you may find that you need to make a claim if you’ve been hurt while travelling on public transport.
Although staff members who work on public transport undergo extensive training, sometimes accidents and injuries can happen. In some cases this may be the fault of the travel company itself, in which case you would need to pursue them when making a passenger injury claim.
However, in some instances you may need to make a passenger injury claim if you’ve been hurt while travelling on public transport even if it wasn’t the fault of the travel company. If you were travelling on a bus that was involved in a collision caused by another driver, you may need to pursue this driver when you make your passenger injury claim.
Similarly, if you’re hurt because of another passenger while travelling on public transport, you could potentially make a passenger injury claim against them, providing that you can show that they were responsible for the harm you’ve suffered.
Remember – you could make a passenger injury claim after any type of travel-related injury, providing it wasn’t your fault. This could include travel by plane, tram, bus, train or taxi, so if you’ve been hurt while travelling you may want to consult with a personal injury law firm to find out whether or not you’ll be eligible to make a passenger injury claim.
Although many people making a passenger injury claim will want to do so relatively quickly, you could still obtain compensation by making a claim even if the incident occurred some time ago.
