Millions of us travel safely on public transport such as buses, trains, trams and taxis on a daily basis, although occasionally some of us may be involved in a road traffic accident whilst using public transport. These types of accidents are traumatic and can have a serious impact on the lives of victims and their families. Whether in the UK or overseas, public transport operators have a duty of care regarding the safety of their passengers, therefore if you’ve been affected physically and/or psychologically, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries and experiences.

What To Do If You Were Injured While Travelling On Public Transport

An accident can be caused by the driver, the bus, coach operator or even the local council.

Following any accident, you should where possible, make a note of the vehicles or people involved and report the incident to the police.

As an innocent and lawful passenger, you have the right to claim compensation against the operating transport company for:

  • any physical or psychological injuries
  • medical treatment required as a result of the accident
  • loss of earnings
  • damage to personal items or clothing
  • any other reasonable losses

We work with you to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve to enable you to rebuild your life.
