Bus Accident Compensation Claim

Bus Accident Compensation Claim

Have you been involved in a bus accident? Have you suffered an injury as a result of this accident? You could be entitled to make a Bus Accident Compensation Claim.

Who do I claim against?

In any personal injury claim it’s always important to identify who was at fault for the accident. This will determine in most cases the insurance policy that we need to access in order to make a claim for compensation. In most cases our first point of call is the bus company itself as they are often very helpful in recording valuable information in relation to the accident.

However, if the bus driver is not at fault it may be due to the actions of another motorist. In this situation we would seek to make a compensation claim against the motorist involved. As long as all parties have stopped and exchanged information then the Bus Company will hold of the information to get your claim started quickly.

What information do I need to make claim for compensation?

• Name and Address
• Data of Accident
• Time of Accident
• Bus Number and Route

The list above is the best place to start when making a claim for compensation. If you are able to provide us with all these details it will help a great deal with getting your claim started as soon as possible.
It is also a standard procedure for the bus driver to take a register of all passengers in the event of an accident.

Medical attention

There are several injuries that may occur in a bus accident and these are similar to injuries that you may receive whilst in an accident involving two cars. For example, you may suffer from Whiplash, Bumps or Bruising, Cuts and scrapes.
However, there are times when more severe injuries may transpire due to a lack of seat belts on the bus. There is a chance you may have been thrown from your seat or you may fall over possibly due to the driver braking or accelerating unnecessarily hard. Whether your injury is minor or more severe we always recommend that you seek medical attention straight away following the accident.

However, the term ‘bus accidents’ does not just include bus crashes. Simply bumping and injuring your head on the seat in front of you on a bus, due to the bus driver’s carelessness could entitle you to make a claim for compensation.
