Not every public transport accident in Spelthorne will be the fault of the company that runs the service in question or one of its employees. Many times, public transport accidents are caused by negligent parties that have nothing to do with the service provider at all.
If you’re injured in an accident while travelling on public transport that was neither your fault nor that of the firm whose service you were using, there will still be a chance that you’ll be able to take action against the person or organisation that was to blame for what happened to you.
Seeking compensation after a public transport accident in Spelthorne
Maybe you were injured after a bus you were travelling on hit a pothole in the road. Assuming that the diver of the bus was not negligent in failing to look out for the road surface imperfections or had not driven over it at speed, liability in these circumstances could fall to the local authority that was responsible for the upkeep of the road surface in question.
If you were hurt after a train you were travelling on hit a load that had fallen from a lorry onto the tracks, you may well find that you would be able to take action against the company that owned the vehicle that was responsible for the spill, although the train operator might bear some responsibility if the driver failed to notice the obstacle on the tracks.
You might even have been injured while travelling on a tram after a driver took a wrong turn and slammed into the carriage you were in. If this were to happen to you, you might find yourself well placed to take action against the insurer of the driver of the vehicle that hit you.
You need an expert lawyer to sort out the issue of liability for you whilst you focus on your recovery.
