Had an accident on a bus that was not your fault?
No Win No Fee Bus Accident Compensation
Travelling on a bus or a coach is an extremely convenient way of getting about, beating the congestion, saving on fuel and of course it’s a much greener alternative too. Most of the time travelling on a bus is perfectly safe, but just occasionally there can be problems, and this can easily result in a large number of injuries amongst the passengers.
If you have been injured on a bus or other public transport then you might be entitled to compensation. CK Claims have been helping people for years who have been injured through no fault of their own whilst riding as a passenger in a bus or coach within or around the Manchester region. Due to the number of people carried by a bus there is a high probability that in the event of an accident there will be several people injured who may need treatment.
But it doesn’t necessarily have to be an accident which causes an injury to a passenger. Although the wearing of seatbelts in busses, coaches and minibuses has been mandatory for over a decade now, this only applies to those vehicles being used for long journeys. Busses and coaches used for short trips around town for example are exempt, yet of course the same rules of physics apply – if the vehicle swerves suddenly, brakes aggressively or accelerates rapidly the passengers are likely to be thrown about.
It only takes a driver to brake suddenly or swerve unexpectedly as you’re walking up or down the stairs, or from your seat to the front of the bus and you could easily find yourself being thrown violently. This may result in cuts or bruises, in whiplash or even something more serious such as a broken bone, concussion or head trauma. Regardless of the extent of the injuries there will be costs involved, from medical expenses to a loss of earnings, and it’s only right and fair that you receive compensation for this, on a No Win No Fee basis.
Making A Claim For Bus Accident Compensation
If you or someone you know has been injured whilst travelling on a
bus, coach or minibus around the Manchester area then it’s important ` to talk to us as soon as possible so that we can offer the best advice to maximise the chance of your claim being successful. All bus and coach drivers have a duty of care to their passenger, and if they are found to be in breach of the Public Service Vehicles (conduct of drivers, inspectors, conductors and passengers) Regulations of 1990 then you will very likely be eligible for substantial compensation.
However, if the driver was taking sudden action to avoid an accident which was not his fault, or the accident was caused by another vehicle then your claim for accident compensation will need to be against the driver of the other vehicle. If you’re in any doubt, don’t suffer in silence, but call us on the FREEPHONE number above and find out whether you could have a case for making a bus accident claim for compensation. We offer a No Win No Fee service, so you have absolutely nothing to lose by calling.
