I was recently involved in a public transport accident. Can I make an injury claim?

Did you go on a trip which ended badly? Perhaps you were travelling home as a passenger on the bus after a day at work or out shopping, when the vehicle was involved in an accident. As a result you may have suffered and sustained personal injuries which make you feel helpless, causing your self-esteem to plummet to an all-time low.

The good news is that if you were involved in a public transport accident, involving a bus or a taxi for example, you could be eligible for compensation in the form of a public transport claim. If it’s determined that the driver was at fault concerning the collision you were involved in, then it’s possible for the accident claim to be made by the company that employs the bus or taxi driver.

An accident on a bus can be the result of careless or even dangerous driving which results in serious injury or trauma. If you or other passengers in the bus or taxi were being thrown out of your seat by a driver who was speeding, braking suddenly or too hard, or even driving fast around corners, then the bus driver could be found to be at fault for the accident.
