In an effort to minimise public transport accidents in Bassenthwaite and other towns and cities across the UK, trainee bus drivers obviously aren’t let loose on the public before they have proved that they know exactly what they’re doing. Unfortunately there will be the odd case where a driver who is not quite ready for job hits the road without having had adequate training.
If you’re unfortunate enough to be travelling on a bus when a “wet behind the ears” driver makes some sort of a mistake, and you suffer some form of injury in an accident that was not your fault, there will be a chance that you might well be able to avail yourself of the services of a top no-win, no-fee solicitor like Accident Advice Helpline, with a view to taking the bus company to court in an effort to win a personal injury compensation award.
Various types of public transport accidents in Bassenthwaite
You could have banged your head, and suffered concussion and cuts, after a bus driver came to an abrupt halt having failed to apply his brakes in time. Perhaps a bus driver got into a bit of a muddle while trying to operate his vehicle’s door, causing you to get your arm caught while trying to alight. Its one of the many scenarios public transport accidents in Bassenthwaite could take.
Perhaps your bus driver took a corner too aggressively while you were standing in a bus aisle, causing you to lose your grip on the handle you were using to keep yourself upright and fall to the ground, suffering a dislocated shoulder in the process.
In all of these scenarios, and others like them, there will be a chance that you might be able to raise a claim for financial compensation..
