What type of public transport accident in Chichester, or around the rest of the UK could you claim for? Our most common claims involve buses and trains, but you could claim for any type of accident on public transport if you meet certain criteria:
- The accident must have happened during the last three years
- You should have received medical attention for the injuries sustained
- You must not have been to blame for the accident
If you are not sure whether you are eligible, we can confirm that you have a valid claim if you ring the helpline numbers provided below. Our helpful advisors will quickly let you know if your claim is legitimate, and can guide you through what would be required if you decided to pursue a claim with Accident Advice Helpline after a public transport accident in Chichester.
Trip and fall accidents on public transport
Being a passenger on a bus or train is generally regarded as safe, but there are instances where an accident can easily occur. Examples include if a car pulls out into the road and the bus driver has to brake suddenly or swerve out of the way; also we have made claims for train passengers who have fallen over obstacles left in the corridor by staff members.
Compensation claims can generally be made against a negligent third party, but sometimes the difficult part is determining who that is. It could be the transport company that is at fault for not maintaining the rail tracks for instance, or there could be a dispute about whether another road user is to blame rather than a bus driver.
