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 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.
