Bus Accident Compensation Claims

Bus Accident Compensation Claims

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.

Common Bus Accident Injuries

The types of injuries which can be sustained in bus accidents are:

  • Cuts and bruises
  • Whiplash
  • Fractures
  • Serious head injuries
  • Injuries resulting in brain damage, paralysis or loss of limbs

Here at Farleys Solicitors our dedicated team of personal injury solicitors have a wealth of experience in assisting people claim the compensation they deserve and will be happy to discuss the circumstances of your bus accident on a free of charge basis.

No Win No Fee Bus Accident Claims

Bus operators in the UK owe a duty of care to their passengers. This means that they have a responsibility to ensure passengers’ safety from the moment they step on the bus to the moment they alight.

There are three common causes of accidents resulting in injury to passengers:

  • The bus driver failing to take proper care e.g.
    • pulling away from the bus stop too quickly
    • stopping too suddenly
  • Collision with another vehicle
  • Problems with the road

Choosing the right solicitor is also crucial to both the success of your claim and the amount of compensation you are awarded. Farleys have a wealth of experience in assisting clients with bus accident compensation claims, and wherever possible, Farleys will pursue your claim on a ‘no win no fee’ basis, meaning that you won’t be asked to pay a penny.
