Buses are a very common mode of transport in the UK and are used by thousands of members of the public each day. They are a convenient and environmentally friendly way to get about, but travelling by bus does carry a certain element of risk.
Passengers on buses are allowed to stand and seatbelts are not usually provided, meaning that injuries can be sustained as a result of people being thrown around the bus. If you have been injured on a bus, you may be able to claim compensation from either the bus company, the person responsible for the road traffic accident or the council/authority responsible for maintenance of the road.

There are three common causes of accidents resulting in injury to passengers:
- The bus driver failing to take proper care e.g.
- Collision with another vehicle
- Problems with the road
