Trafford road traffic accidents


Some Trafford road traffic accidents involve different modes of public transport, such as buses, trams, and taxis. If you’ve ridden on one of these forms of transport which was involved in road traffic accident, and you sustained an injury as a result, you have both the legal and moral right to compensation, and we here at Accident Advice Helpline can help you with your claim.

Drivers of public transport vehicles have a duty of care to their passengers

Whatever mode of transport it was that you were using when you were injured, the driver of the vehicle involved has a duty of care to his or her passengers. If he or she was neglectful of that duty in some way, and that neglect resulted in you being injured, you can launch a personal injury claim against the driver.

Other road users and pedestrians can also be injured by public transport vehicles

Of course, it’s not just passengers who get injured in RTAs that involve various modes of public transport — other road users and sometimes pedestrians can also be injured. In August 2014, a Mercedes car was involved in an RTA with an Aviva bus. 

Driver of Mercedes taken to hospital in serious condition

The accident occurred on the A538, Hale Road, near the junction with Brooks Drive in Hale Barns, Trafford. The driver of the Mercedes was rushed to hospital in a serious condition, and one of the passengers on the bus was also treated for a suspected broken arm. The driver of the bus was uninjured. Whether it was the bus driver or the Mercedes driver who was to blame for the accident is not yet clear.

Claiming compensation for injuries sustained in Trafford road traffic accidents

If you’ve been injured in one of the many Trafford road traffic accidents that take place in Greater Manchester, and someone else is to blame, you should be launching a personal injury claim for financial compensation. Just make sure that you obtain medical proof of your injury, and if possible get the names and addresses of anybody who witnessed the incident. You also need to make sure that you launch your claim within three years of the accident and injury occurring in order to stay within the three-year statute of limitations.
