Have you been injured whilst using public transport?
Although many road traffic accidents involve private vehicles and road users, public transport vehicles can also be affected. If you’ve been hurt or injured whilst using public transport, you should be able to make a compensation claim in the same way as other road users, providing that the incident wasn’t your fault.
Of course, if you were hurt whilst travelling as a passenger, you should be able to make a claim if your own driver was at fault, as well as if another road user caused the accident.
How long have you got to make your claim?
In most cases, claimants don’t have an unlimited amount of time to take legal action after an accident. In fact, claimants are generally expected to take action within three years of the incident occurring so it’s important not to wait too long to seek advice or you could risk missing out on the compensation you deserve.
If you sustained very serious injuries and you don’t feel up to making a claim within this timeframe, it’s important to seek legal help as a family member may be able to assist you with your claim or act on your behalf.
