Millions of us travel on public transport such as buses, trams and taxis (including private taxis) on a daily basis. Occasionally, some of us may be involved in a collision while using public transport. We can help with taxi and bus accident claims.
If you have been seriously injured and sustained head, brain or spinal damage, we have a specialist team of solicitors who can help.
With over 30 years’ experience and recommended by the Legal 500, our specialist serious injury solicitors will fight for you and your family.
Public transport vehicles such as buses can give rise to serious injury in road traffic collisions. Due to the large number of passengers, the lack of seat belts and even having to stand, there is an increased risk of injury even in a relatively minor collision. This is why making a bus collision compensation claim is so important.
If another vehicle caused the collision, 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 collision was caused by a defective road surface, your claim may be against your local authority.
We also handle taxi collision claims. If you’re involved in a collision 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 collision 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.
We pull together with you and your family to support you with expert legal advice, financial assistance including benefits advice and emergency funds, physical help with early intervention for treatment, rehabilitation and therapies, as well as emotional and psychological support for the whole family.
