If you were a passenger on a bus or coach and were injured in an accident, it is highly likely that you will be entitled to benefits and compensation. The most common type of bus accident is where a passenger falls after the bus stops suddenly. Sometimes this may be before you have had the chance to sit down or you could be thrown out of your seat. It may be the bus driver’s fault or someone else’s fault. You may have a claim if you were a passenger on public transport, or in a private vehicle for example on a coach holiday, bus tour or airport transfer.
If you are a bus or coach driver who has been injured while driving your work vehicle, you may have rights to benefits and compensation under both the compulsory third-party motor accident scheme and the workers compensation scheme. It is a complex area of law and you need the right people looking after you. Our specialist personal injury lawyers will assess your claim and advise you of your rights. Where you have a choice of claims, our compensation experts will explain the benefits of your options and which scheme would be best for you.
