Every time a car owner sets of out of his or her driveway, there’s an acceptance that there will be a chance, no matter how small, that they might wind up being injured in an accident that was not their fault, including a public transport crash in South Hams.
The same is true on public transport. Whenever you set off to catch a bus, train, tram or coach, there will also be a possibility that you might get hurt. This might come about as a consequence of the negligence of the driver of the vehicle you were in, the behaviour of one of your fellow passengers, or the driver of another vehicle. You might also get caught up in a public transport accident that was caused by the state of the road you were travelling on.
If you were not to blame for the circumstances in which you sustained your injury, there will be chance that you might be able to make a claim for compensation after a public transport crash in South Hams.
Compensation after a public transport crash in South Hams
Perhaps you were injured after a train you were travelling on hit a broken track while leaving a station. The impact of such an incident would most likely be more than enough to throw you off your feet, potentially resulting in a nasty head injury. You might be able to seek a compensation pay-out if this were to happen to you.
Maybe you were hurt when the brakes failed on a bus you were traveling on, causing the vehicle to slam into a row of parked cars. As the bus company in question should have made sure that their vehicle was in a fit condition to be carrying passengers, there would be a possibility that you would be able to seek recompense under such circumstances.
It is in these sorts of cases that Accident Advice Helpline can assist.
