More about bus, taxi and other road accident claims

Public transport vehicles such as buses can give rise to serious injury in a road accident. Due to the large number of passengers, the lack of seatbelts and even having to stand, there is an increased risk of injury even in relatively minor accidents. This is why making a bus accident compensation claim is so important.

If another vehicle caused the accident then the compensation claim will be made against them. However if the bus or tram driver was at fault then the company they’re employed by will be liable for compensation. If the accident was caused by a defective road surface, your claim may be against your local authority.

We also handle taxi accident claims. If you’re involved in an accident as a passenger, make sure you get full details about the taxi cab, driver and company if the taxi driver was at fault. If the road accident was caused by another driver, don’t rely on the taxi driver, you need to ensure you get the other driver’s full details, including insurance information.

Bus, Taxi and Other Road Traffic Accident Claims Case Studies

Here are just a small selection of some of our recent bus, taxi and other road accident claims case studies:

  • Ms W was a passenger on a bus when it was involved in a road traffic accident. She received £2,500 bus accident compensation after suffering whiplash and neck injuries.
  • Mr F received £4,000 in compensation after suffering a fractured clavicle. He was on a bus which braked sharply and suddenly when the accident happened.
  • In another road traffic accident involving a bus, our personal injury claims solicitors secured £28,500 in compensation for our client who suffered a hip fracture. The accident was not the fault of the bus driver but was the fault of another motorist who could not be traced; therefore our road accident solicitors helped our client receive compensation from the MIB (Motor Insurers’ Bureau).
