Bus accident testimonials

Why use Russell Worth for your bus accident claim?

* Unless you are involved in a hit and run accident – your solicitor will advise you early on about this.

What to do if you are involved in a bus accident

There are a number of steps you should follow in the moments after an incident to give your bus accident compensation claim the best chance of success.

Types of Bus and Coach Accidents

A bus can be carrying up to 70 passengers at any one time, which is a huge responsibility – one that should not be undertaken lightly.

Driving style
Driving around corners too fast, heavy braking and accelerating, or a collision – in these situations passengers can be thrown from their seats, which can result in injury. It is not always the fault of the driver but sometimes it is their careless behavior that can lead directly to people getting injured.

Collision with another vehicle
If your bus is involved in a collision with another vehicle and it was the other vehicle drivers’ fault then any bus passenger accident claim compensation will be claimed from the responsible driver’s insurance company.  If your bus or coach is involved in an accident and it was the drivers’ fault then the claim will be made against the bus companies insurance company.

More simple accidents
Other more simple bus accidents might include cutting yourself on a sharp, damaged or faulty fixture or fitting on the bus, slips and trips on the bus and falling when getting on or off the bus. 

The bottom line is if you have been involved in a bus accident as a passenger and it was in no way your fault, then you may be able to claim some bus accident compensation. If you’re not sure you should, take a look at our why claim section to get some perspective.

Typical injuries sustained in bus accidents
We have successfully won bus accident compensation claims for a variety of injuries sustained – from soft tissue injuries to minor fractures and whiplash to broken bones, head or brain damage, amputations and even death.

Bus drivers

Sometimes the stress of dealing with so many people, the business of the roads, or just plain tiredness, can lead to some careless driving and accidents. This is, unfortunately, all too common, so they need to be able to deal with it.

Most of them are very good drivers but like so many things, it’s a select few that give them a bad name and which act as a catalyst for claims.
