Public transport claims

Public transport claims

If you have been involved in an accident while travelling on public transport, then it is highly likely the accident will not be your fault. All public transport networks owe a duty of care to their passengers, have to comply with health and safety standards, and should ensure where possible that your journey is a safe one.

If you have been injured while travelling on public transport, you may be able to a claim for compensation.

Public transport accidents are not always as a result of a direct collision. It may be possible to make a claim if you were injured as a result of heavy breaking or if you suffer a fall on a bus where the driver sets off without waiting for you to sit down. Most buses have CCTV footage available following an accident, which will usually confirm the circumstances.

It is possible to claim compensation for:

  • Your physical injuries
  • Psychological injury
  • Treatment Costs
  • Past and future loss of earnings
  • Any other related financial losses or expenses

We will therefore seek to achieve the best possible outcome, and recover for you the compensation you deserve.
