Public transport accident claims

Many of us never give it a second thought that we may be involved in a road traffic accident when using public transport.

Unfortunately, accidents on public transport do happen and people may be injured as a result.

Public transport accident claims

You may have been injured on a bus, taxi, train, underground or ferry. The accident may have been caused by negligence, or defective equipment or perhaps another reason. Either way, you are entitled to pursue compensation when you have been injured in an accident which was not your fault.

There are specific health and safety regulations in place to help safeguard passengers when using different modes of public transport. When these have been breached, or negligence has taken place, people can make a claim against the public transport operator.

Accidents on public transport may have been caused by:

  • Heavy breaking
  • Failure to provide enough time to exit public transport
  • Spillage on platform
  • Overcrowding resulting in lack of handrails available
  • Driver crashing into another vehicle, or vice versa

These claims can be more difficult when accidents have been caused by negligence of another driver. This is why it is important to seek expert legal advice from a personal injury solicitor.

Injuries from public transport accidents can include:

  • Whiplash
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Broken bones
  • Head injury
