    Public transport incident in West Lancashire


    Public transport incident in West Lancashire

    Have you been involved in an incident on the roads that wasn’t your fault? If the incident happened on public transport, did the driver behave recklessly and cause passengers to fall? Whatever the cause of your public transport incident in West Lancashire, we can help to identify the negligent party and start a claim to get compensation for your injuries.

    What injuries can I claim for?

    Common injuries sustained in accidents on public transport include head trauma and whiplash. This often occurs when passengers are thrown forward, and without restraining seatbelts, serious damage can be caused to the head and neck.

    Other cases involve broken bones, cuts and bruises, and back injuries – commonly from becoming unbalanced and falling over inside the vehicle. Buses in particular are frequently involved in public transport accidents, sometimes due to unsafe driving practices, but in other cases it is simply the sheer volume of traffic on the road that causes a problem.

    Who do I claim against for a public transport incident in West Lancashire?

    You claim against a negligent third party for personal injury compensation – this could be a member of staff or a transport company. Proving negligence is a major part of your case, so it is important to have witness statements and police reports included as evidence.

    If a vehicle fails its safety check after the accident, the transport organisation may be at fault. This could also happen with a train company if the tracks have fallen into disrepair. Some cases involve a passenger causing an accident when they have pulled the safety cord on a train with no valid reason, in which case they may be the negligent party.
