Bus accidents explained
Even minor accidents can leave you with long-term injuries such as whiplash. As a passenger on a bus, your injury is usually due to someone else's negligence. That’s why you should talk to a personal injury claims solicitor.
Most common causes and types of bus accidents
If your accident happened due to your bus driver’s negligence, we will claim for compensation from his/her company. However, there are all kinds of scenarios that can cause a bus accident:
- When another driver or road user caused the accident
- When the bus hit a pothole or a patch of ice and the local council can be held responsible

I broke my wrist when the bus crashed into another vehicle and I put my hand out to stop my fall. Can I claim for compensation?
Yes. It’s a natural reaction to put your arms out and protect yourself from a fall. It’s likely that breaking your wrist doing this, may have prevented you from other injuries. If someone else was negligent, whether fully or partly, for your injury, you may be entitled to compensation.
How much compensation can I claim?
Obviously, the level of compensation you can claim depends on the seriousness of your injuries. If your accident was caused due to someone else’s negligence, your claim could be worth several thousand pounds. For more information call us on freephone or try our online road traffic claims calculator.
