    Public transport injury in North Tyneside


    Personal Injury Solicitors in North Tyneside

    Travelling on our bus and train network is generally considered safe, and when a serious incident occurs it can make news headlines because of the sheer number of people involved.

    Fortunately, accidents like this tend to happen infrequently. More common scenarios are when a driver stops suddenly, or you trip over something that has been left out in a train corridor. If this has happened to you, and you want to claim compensation for your public transport injury in North Tyneside, we may be able to help.

    Common injuries on public transport

    Bumps to the head and whiplash injuries often occur on public transport. The lack of support for the head when travelling on a bus in particular, can cause a sudden forward and backward movement that damages the neck and shoulders.

    Sometimes pain from a whiplash injury is not felt until several days after the accident, which can be a little disconcerting if you thought that you had escaped uninjured. The best thing to do in this case is to see your GP, or go to the local Accident and Emergency department if the surgery is closed or you are in severe pain.

    Making a claim for whiplash with Accident Advice Helpline

    Whiplash is one of the most common claims we make on behalf of our customers, with many cases causing long-term pain and discomfort for the victim. You may be able to make a claim against the driver of the vehicle or in some cases the transport company, if the accident happened during the last three years.
