Public transport accidents are an everyday occurrence; you may be a pedestrian hit by an oncoming vehicle, on board a bus or a passenger in a truck. Accidents vary from minor cuts and bruises to serious consequences like head injuries. Bus injury claims and car injury claims are two of the most common types of transport accident claims although accidents involving trams, trains, boats and taxis all still happen on a daily basis.

In many cases, victims can claim against the bus, coach or train company they were travelling with. Transport companies owe a duty of care towards their passengers and other road users and companies can be held liable for the negligent driving of their employees if they cause the accident.

Different types of transport accident claim

Types of injury resulting from a transport accident claim

Whiplash injuries are one of the most everyday types of injury seen after a transport accident. These can range from being minor and affecting individuals only temporarily with nausea and headaches being the main symptoms.

However, whiplash can also cause serious long-term effects which can impact heavily on victims. Broken bones can also ensue leaving sufferers incapacitated. Perhaps your injuries are psychological and have made you nervous or anxious as a result. Whatever your injuries, it is likely that they have been of detriment to your everyday life and if the accident was no fault of yours, you may be able to place a compensation claim.

What to do after a transport accident

If possible take photographs of any injuries sustained to the vehicles involved immediately after the accident. Again, if possible then it is helpful if you can photograph any injuries or record any details like the names of other people involved in the accident. These can all be useful when pursuing transport accident claims.
