About Bus and Coach Accident Claims

Buses and coaches are generally safe and convenient forms of transport. Unfortunately, accidents can still happen thanks to someone else's negligence, and if you are involved in such an incident, you are entitled to claim compensation for any injuries you have suffered as a result.

Accidents of this type can happen in any number of ways, and can involve many different types of parties. While bus passengers are the most likely to be injured in a bus accident, other parties can be subject to injury too, such as bus or coach drivers, those in other vehicles, cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians.

Causes

The causes of an accident can be wide and varied, and fault may lie with different parties, including the driver of a vehicle, the operator of the coach or bus or even the authority responsible for maintaining the roads, should poorly maintained roads be to blame.

Accidents may also arise as a result of:

  • Poorly maintained road surfaces
  • Adverse weather conditions
  • Objects or obstructions in the road
  • Defects in the road
  • Poor road signage
  • Driver rest regulations not being observed
  • Unsafe vehicles

If any of the above are to blame for you suffering injury following a collision involving a coach or bus, you may be in a position to make a claim for compensation.

Making a Claim

No matter the severity of your injuries, making a compensation claim after an accident can be both important and beneficial. The money you receive will not only make up for the injury and discomfort you have suffered as the result of someone else's negligence. It will also help you to meet any costs caused by the accident, such as:

  • Medical treatment
  • Loss of earnings as a result of any time off work you may have needed
  • Care and assistance provided by loved ones or friends
  • Travel expenses following the accident
  • Damaged items, such as clothing and personal property
