    Public transport accident in Oldham


    If you have been involved in a public transport accident in Oldham there are many things that you may be thinking of.  You might be concerned about your injuries and therefore seeking medical attention.  You could be more focused on wondering how you are going to get to work, or if you are going to have to take time off.

    Whatever the situation you are going to be caught up in the moment and will no doubt be feeling a mix of fear, adrenaline and even panic.  When the dust settles and you have the time to get your head round what has happened to you then you may start to consider whether or not you can make a claim for compensation.

    If you want to find out more about making a claim, keep reading.

    Steps to take if you want compensation for a public transport accident in Oldham

    Being involved in an accident on public transport is really no different to any other road traffic collision, or even an incident that has taken place in a public area. If you have been injured as a result of the actions or even negligence of another person then you are likely to have the right to seek compensation. The trick is simply determining who is responsible and therefore who to make a claim against.

    Immediately following your accident you should make notes of what happened.  This is important because over time it is easy to forget simple bits of information and salient details that you may later rely on. If possible take photographs, or even make sketches to help you keep things clear in your own mind as matters progress.

    It is also vitally important that you have evidence of the injuries that you have sustained, and the best way to do this is by seeking medical attention as soon as possible.  Your doctor or whoever you see will make relevant notes in your medical history which, with your permission, we can access and use to support your claim.
