There are many possible causes of a bus accident. Often, passengers are injured when the bus they are travelling in collides with another vehicle, careens off the road, or comes to an abrupt stop, ejecting them from their seats.
Or, the bus driver may act negligently in some way, such as driving while ill, tired or intoxicated. The bus itself may even be defective, with poor brakes or worn tires. Alternatively, the bus might strike a pedestrian, cyclist or other road user.
Bus accident claims
Whether you were a passenger, pedestrian, cyclist or driver, we can help you. Injuries sustained in bus accidents can be serious, ranging from broken bones to catastrophic head trauma. Sadly, major bus crashes can result in numerous fatalities.
We understand how upsetting it is to find yourself in this situation, especially if your child is involved. We can uncover what went wrong and why. Once we have established blame, we can pursue a claim against those at fault.
Bus accident compensation
You are able to make a personal injury claim against both private and public bus operators. This includes school buses. Although legal action will not turn back the clock, compensation can provide some form of justice for your pain and suffering.
A bus accident claim also allows you to recover any money you have lost because of the incident. This includes damage to your property, your loss of earnings and the cost of medical treatment.
