    Public transport accident in Oldbury

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Oldbury

    Being involved in a public transport accident in Oldbury can mean different things to different people.  However, it doesn’t matter what the situation was that led to your accident, or even how you were hurt – all the team at Accident Advice Helpline need to know is if you were injured and whether the accident was someone else’s fault.

    With this information we will then be able to determine whether or not you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation and if we can support you in this process.

    Who can make a claim following a public transport accident in Oldbury?

    Ultimately anyone who meets the criteria as mentioned above could be able to make a claim, but broadly speaking there are three scenarios in which you could be entitled to seek compensation.

    If you were on board any form of public transport and were involved in an accident that was the fault of another road user.  It may be that you were on a bus when another vehicle pulled out of a junction.  In this situation the driver of the bus would not be at fault, the other road user would be, but you would still have been injured.

    You might have been thrown forward and sustained whiplash as a result.  You might have fallen down the stairs, or been thrown on to the floor.  Whatever the situation, you could claim against the other driver.

    You might have been on the vehicle itself and injured as a direct result of the actions of the driver, or another member of staff associated with the travel company.  It could be that you tripped over a piece of carpet on a train that had not been properly secured.  You might have cut yourself on a jagged and sharp piece of metal that had not been dealt with.

    Equally, you might have been a road user that collided with a bus or other mode of transport.  If the other driver, who just happened to be driving a bus, coach or taxi was to blame then you could claim against them and their company as you would any other vehicle.
