Bus accident claims can often involve many more people than similar accidents between cars or motorbikes. An accident between two cars may only involve a handful of people but if one of the vehicles in the accident was a bus there could be many more casualties. Camps Solicitors have a proven track record when it comes to acquiring accident compensation for people injured whilst travelling on a bus or coach.
Bus accident claims compensation
Statistically speaking, bus passengers are less likely to be injured than passengers travelling in a car. Even though buses are a safer way to travel than cars, it is a fact of life that occasionally accidents will happen.
If passengers suffer a personal injury as a result of bad driving on the part of the bus driver, it is very likely they will be able to make a successful bus accident claim for bus accident compensation against the bus company who employs the driver. It does not matter if there were no other vehicles or pedestrians involved in the accident. Here are some examples of typical bus accident claims:
- Getting thrown from your seat or off your feet due to the driver braking or accelerating unnecessarily hard.
- Being injured when the bus goes round a corner dangerously fast.
- On double-decker buses, people going up or down the stairs may fall and injure themselves if the bus is being driven unsafely.
- Falls getting on or off the bus at a bus stop.
Bus operators have a duty of care to their passengers to ensure their safety, but if they fail in this then you may be able to make a bus accident claim for personal injury compensation, regardless of how your injury was sustained. However, if the accident was not the fault of the bus driver, then a bus accident claim can be made against the motorist who was responsible for causing the accident.
