Who is eligible to make a claim?
Anyone who has been in an accident on public transport could make a claim, provided that injury has been suffered and it was someone else’s fault that the accident happened.
It might be something that a bus driver has done to cause you to get hurt, such as a sudden manoeuvre that caused you to bang your head on a pole or the seat in front of you. It might be a wet floor on a train that caused you to slip and fall. There are many things that could happen to cause an accident.
Exactly what happened doesn’t matter. What is important is that it wasn’t your fault, and you got injured. If it happened during the past three years, you could be eligible to claim, so why not contact Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible and enquire about claiming compensation?
