Although accidents involving buses are less frequent than other types of road accidents, the sad reality is that when large types of vehicles like buses or coaches crash – it can result in a large number of casualties.
Bus companies have a duty to ensure their passengers are safe whilst travelling on their buses. If this duty has been neglected and you have been injured as a result, you can claim for compensation.
Passengers on buses can be injured in a variety of ways:
- Slipping or tripping on a bus
- Falling whilst getting on or off a bus
- Injuries may also be caused by sharp or fault fixtures and fittings on a bus
- Reckless driving by bus drivers can also cause injury to passengers
No matter what type of bus accident you may have experienced, if you have been injured and it wasn’t your fault; you can claim bus accident compensation.
