Most people tend to associate a whiplash injury in Bardsley, or in any other town or village, with a car accident; one moving vehicle crashing into the back of another, stationary, vehicle.
It’s not just car crashes that cause whiplash
However, whiplash injury is not just confined to motor cars. It can happen with heavier and bigger vehicles too like lorries and buses; in fact, if the vehicle is a bus full of passengers, multiple whiplash injuries can take place at the same time.
Using Accident Advice Helpline to claim for a whiplash injury in Bardsley
If you were a passenger on a bus that was involved in a road traffic accident and you sustained a whiplash injury in Bardsley, providing the accident was not of your making, and that the injury you sustained was reasonably serious, you’ll be entitled to launch a personal injury claim for compensation, and we here at Accident Advice Helpline (AAH) could help.
Choosing the right injury claims solicitor to work with is important
Many of the newer buses in service today are fitted with seatbelts, and it’s always recommended that if fitted, you should wear them. However, it doesn’t necessarily follow that if you didn’t wear a seatbelt, and you sustained a whiplash injury whilst riding on a bus, that you couldn’t claim compensation. In this sort of instance, you need to ensure that you work with a creditable specialist injury claims lawyer like us here at the AAH; someone who knows the ropes in terms of the ins and outs of whiplash injury claims.
When the police are involved
Depending on the circumstances of the accident that caused the whiplash injury, you may end up suing the bus company, or the driver of another vehicle who was to blame for the accident. It’s almost certain that the police will be involved, and you should take advice from them as to the best way to proceed. You can also ask them at that time, to let you know what the incident report reference number will be, so that you can include it in any ensuing personal injury claim.
