Bus travel is a popular way to get around safely in the UK but unfortunately, bus accidents are a regular occurrence and can often mean serious injuries for victims. If you have been injured in a bus accident and want to make a bus injury claim then please contact Jefferies Solicitors today to discuss your case in more detail.

If you are not to blame for the accident, there are several different types of claim an injured party can make:

  • Against the bus company who failed to ensure its drivers were driving safely
  • A claim can be brought against a manufacturer of faulty parts belonging to a bus
  • Other drivers involved in the accident who were driving recklessly can also be responsible for bus accidents
  • Pedestrians walking near buses when they crash have also been known to seek personal injury compensation

Older people often enjoy using a bus as a main form of transport. It is therefore not surprising that the majority of bus injury claims are made by people over the age of 55, according to a report by the British Medical Journal. The BMJ report also stated that overcrowding was one of the main causes, particularly when buses were navigating bends and sharp turnings.

Common injuries sustained in bus accident claims

  • Head injuries and brain injuries (TBI – Traumatic Brain Injuries)
  • Accidents involving all 4 limbs (arms and legs)
  • Injuries to the vertebral column

Your right to bus injury compensation

Bus companies have a duty of care to their passengers and if this is breached then you have the right to seek compensation. The accident may have rendered you unable to continue with your job and you can, therefore, pursue a claim for loss of earnings. You can also claim back the money you have spent on travelling to and from medical appointments or any medical equipment you have had to pay for to help with your injury.

Medical evidence will be required to make your case so it is worth remembering that all medical documentation you have will be needed. If you have any photographs of the injuries or of the accident scene then these can also be useful.
