Have you been hurt whilst travelling as a passenger? Whenever you travel as a passenger, you’re putting your life in someone else’s hands. Regardless of the type of vehicle you’re travelling in, someone else is then responsible for your safety and you’re relying on them to make the journey as safe as possible.
In order to ensure passenger safety as much as possible, public transport companies do apply certain rules and guidelines to travelling. For example, when travelling by bus, you may be advised not to stand whilst the bus is moving or not to wait too close to the doors whilst you’re waiting to get off the bus.
Similarly, when travelling on the tube or the train, there are yellow markers designed to prevent people from standing too close to the edge of the platform to reduce the risk of injury. You may even find that some doors are locked whilst the vehicle is in motion to prevent you from opening the door in traffic.
However, despite all these rules, sometimes injuries do unfortunately occur and drivers, as well as passengers, could be at risk of suffering harm. However, if you are hurt whilst travelling as a passenger, there are steps you can take to seek redress.
