I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and can’t thank you enough for all the hard work that you put in. Everything went so smoothly and all I had to do was sign some papers and everything was taken care of. Anytime I had any concerns I knew I could call and my mind was always put at rest. You can never know how much this means to me and I am so grateful. If anything ever happened to me again then I would come straight to you.

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:
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.
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.
