When you travel on public transport, you put your trust in the company you are travelling with and the person in charge of vehicle. You don’t expect for an accident to occur, or to suffer injuries as a result.
As a passenger on any type of public transport, if you are injured as a result of an accident, you may have the right to claim compensation.
We understand the law, and the operator’s and driver’s responsibilities and can advise you on your case.
The public transport operator has a duty of care to the passengers it carries and has a legal duty to comply with safety standards.
Since 2001, all coaches manufactured have to be fitted with seatbelts before they are permitted on UK roads. However, regular service buses do not. As a result, if a bus brakes hard or is involved in an accident, passengers are often thrown from their seats and can suffer injuries such as whiplash, leg injuries or arm injuries.
