Public transport is a popular way to see the beautiful villages and countryside of West Yorkshire, with the bus, coach and train networks being busy all year round. If you have been unfortunate enough to suffer injury in a public transport accident in West Yorkshire, however, our expert solicitors can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Who is eligible to make a claim?
You may be able to start a personal injury claim if the following criteria are met:
- The accident happened within three years of the start of your claim
- You received medical treatment for any injuries you are claiming for
- The accident was not your fault
In the case of public transport accidents, there are various reasons why an accident might have happened. Maybe you tripped over something left out in a train corridor by a member of the transport staff, or sometimes poor driving causes a bus or coach to swerve and the passengers are thrown to the floor of the vehicle.
In some instances, the transport company may be the negligent party for failing to adequately maintain their vehicle, or meet the health and safety requirements laid down in law.
