Bus Accident Claims
Have you sustained injury whilst using public transport? Buses are one of the safest modes of public transport, largely due to the rigorous training strategies employed by public transport operators. Although rare, accidents involving buses do still occur and can be an extremely traumatic experience for the passengers involved. You may think that, due to their size, public transport vehicles would be able to withstand the force of a collision with a much smaller vehicle, but in fact, it is these small collisions which cause the most damage. While the injuries sustained in such situations can vary in accordance with the severity of the impact, it is likely a significant proportion of passengers will suffer some form of impact-related whiplash as a result.
If you have suffered from whiplash, or any other kind of injury as a consequence of a bus accident, you may be entitled to claim injury compensation from the bus driver’s employer, or the car driver responsible for the incident.

Bus Accident Claims Explained
Bus accident claims are rarely as straightforward as those brought for car accidents. This is, in no small part, due to the imposing size of buses, which many motorists claim are simply too big for some residential streets in the UK. The other factor concerns manouvrability; the fact that it’s generally more difficult to alter the course of a bus in a few seconds due to its size and bulk. Although bus driver error accounts for a percentage of all bus accidents, it is usually the impatience and incompetence of car drivers which leads to preventable accidents. Whether the causation of your accident is attributed to the bus driver or another motorist, it is vital you seek the best possible representation for your case. Whilst the Public Service Vehicle Regulations Act (1990) has been devised to offer some level of protection for public transport passengers, only an accredited and experienced solicitor familiar with similar claims will be able to use this to advantage. Claiming after a bus accident needn’t be stressful and complicated, as long as you have the right solicitor representing you.

We offer support for anyone who has suffered whiplash following a bus accident and depending upon the nature of your injuries, we may be able to arrange medical treatment for you as part of our no win no fee commitment.
