About public transport accidents
Public transport is generally a safe way to travel, however from time to time accidents can happen. Public transport operators have a duty of care towards passengers, so if you’ve been injured while travelling on public transport, you can make a claim for compensation.
‘Public transport’ includes a bus, train, ferry, metro (underground) and also a taxi.
Most common causes of public transport accidents include:
– Sudden, heavy braking
– Dangerous or negligent driving
– Too little time given to passengers leaving the bus (i.e. passenger crushed or hit by bus door)
How to claim compensation for a public transport accident?
First, we need to know some basic details about your accident (such as when, where and how it happened) and the injuries you have suffered. We will also ask you about medical treatment you have already received.
One of our solicitors specialising in public transport accidents will review your case based on the details received from you, in order to assess how successful your claim is likely to be.
If you require further medical treatment and/or rehabilitation, it is vital to contact a solicitor as soon as possible, so that the best possible care (e.g. private surgery or rehabilitation) could be arranged at the earliest opportunity.
