    Sevenoaks accident claim

    Sevenoaks is probably one of the more familiar settlements in the whole of Kent, a county in the south-east of England. With a population of approximately 29,500, it is also a popular commuter town with strong links into London. While a couple of ancient roads mark the spot where Sevenoaks sits, those roads are modernised today and there are many other links to local areas by public transport of various kinds as well. Fortunately, any kind of Sevenoaks accident claim regarding public transport accidents tends to be a rare thing.

    Buses make the world of difference to many people, particularly as they provide a crucial method for people who don’t drive to get to and from work and to go shopping as well. The standards in place in bus companies are excellent, and it is highly unusual for any accidents to occur. Even breakdowns are kept to an absolute minimum, thanks to the excellent maintenance facilities operated.

    How might you suffer an accident on a bus?

    While accidents are rare, there is a slim potential to be injured while travelling on one. For example, if the driver braked sharply for no good reason, people on the bus may be flung forwards because no seatbelts are generally worn. They might end up striking their face on a bar or pole in front of them, doing damage to teeth or soft tissues as a result.

    Such things are rare, since bus drivers receive excellent training and are diligent in their service to the public. However, even if a bus driver meets and exceeds the standards required of them, they may not be able to avoid an accident that is caused by another driver.

    Could you claim?

    If you are in any doubt over whether a claim could be a possibility for you following an accident on a bus in which you did receive injuries, speaking to a legal expert makes a lot of sense. You will find out once and for all whether you could claim – but you do need to call within three years of the accident.
