Bus & Coach Accidents Compensation Claims

Should you be involved in an accident whilst travelling on a bus or coach it may be possible to pursue a personal injury compensation claim.

Injuries arise not only from collisions but also when buses or coaches are involved in near misses as they often have to brake sharply and without warning.

Where a bus or coach is involved in a collision or a near miss, you may suffer personal injury in a number of ways not just as a result of the impact itself. This is because most buses and coaches do not have seat belts or areas where luggage can be secured. As a consequence should an accident occur you could sustain injury by striking part of the bus, being struck by another passenger or by being hit flying luggage.

Many injuries occur because passengers are not restrained and suffer significant whiplash or strike their limbs or head off the seat in front. Injuries can also be far more serious where passengers are forced to stand because no seating was available immediately prior to the accident.
