A public transport accident in Basingstoke and Deane is actually more common than you may think. There are some people out there who may fall over on the bus due to sharp braking. There are others who may injure themselves on trains and there are others who may be involved in collisions with public transportation. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we can help. On this page, we are going to talk you through the process of what needs to be done should you find yourself injured.
Get medical attention
Seriously, before you do anything else, you absolutely must get medical attention if you have been involved in a public transport accident, even if you feel well. The medical examination is important for a few different reasons. Firstly, it will ensure that you get the treatment that you need which will, in turn, ensure that your injuries start to heal sooner as opposed to later. In addition to this, we at Accident Advice Helpline will need access to your medical report otherwise we will be unable to proceed with your compensation claim.
If you are involved in an incident whilst actually on public transportation, do make sure you inform the driver of the vehicle so that they can stop it and help you get the attention that you deserve.
Call the police if appropriate
If you are travelling in another vehicle which has been hit by public transportation or perhaps if you are a pedestrian, the police need to be in attendance. It is a legal requirement, even if the collision is fairly minor. The police report will highlight who the police believe to be at fault and this will, of course, be an incredibly important piece of evidence when it comes to determining negligence.
If the incident was not your fault, why should you have to suffer? There is a good chance that you will be able to claim compensation and we wish to help you with that. Compensation ensures that you are awarded a payment for the pain and suffering of dealing with your injuries. In some cases, you may also be able to receive a payment for any financial losses that you have had to deal with too. Our team here at Accident Advice Helpline will help you to claim as much compensation as you are entitled to. All you need to do is pick up that telephone for a no obligation discussion with our team.
