Sustaining injuries in a public transport accident in Christchurch is traumatic in itself, but when the accident happened because of someone else’s negligence, it can be particularly distressing.
Accidents like this can happen for a variety of reasons. Sometimes the driver of a bus has acted recklessly and caused injuries to the passengers; other instances involve claiming against a transport company for failing to maintain their vehicles or rail network.

What can my compensation be used for?
Injuries vary in severity from cuts and bruises to serious long-term issues that affect mobility. Sometimes a victim is unable to work or has to cut down on their hours, in which case they might choose to use the compensation to replace or supplement an income.
Others may prefer to use their compensation to purchase mobility equipment for the home, or to have their property adapted for wheelchair use. There is no restriction on how the money can be spent, and the decision is often made according to individual circumstances.
