Bus and Train Accident Claims

If you have suffered an injury on public transport, due to traffic accidents or harm caused by structural issues, you may be entitled to make a claim. 

Injuries can occur on public transport from luggage falling from overhead height or other falling items as well as issues involving mechanised doors. 

Although you might not feel that a claim is possible, common public transport injuries are listed below:

  • If you suffered an injury, as a result of a train coming to a sudden stop, or if the vehicle crashes. 
  • If you are a passenger in an Uber or a taxi when it crashes. 
  • If you are involved in a crash while on a bus or coach and have suffered whiplash in consequence. 
  • If another passenger has committed violent or abusive acts against you. 
  • If your limbs become trapped between a tram and the platform. 

Making a Claim:

To claim against an accident that is not your fault, you must seek legal advice to amplify the likelihood of success. Legally, you have a limit of three years to claim from the date of your accident; if you are claiming on behalf of another individual, the time frame can be extended. 

You can claim for another person if:

  • This individual is a child. 
  • This person has suffered life-changing injuries. 
  • This individual has a diminished mental capacity. 
  • This person is the victim of a fatal accident. 

If you are considering making a claim, it is essential to recognise that bus and train accident claims are considered under a No Win No Fee bracket. Therefore, you need only to pay for our service if you successfully receive the compensation due to you.

How We Can Help

If you desire to make a claim, Ackroyd Legal is highly experienced in addressing personal injury cases, and our team of solicitors aim to gain the compensation that you need.

In cases like this, your claim, it is the transport company and not the driver who is held responsible, as they employ the drivers and are responsible for any necessary maintenance. If you are claiming against the owner of a car, the driver is at fault, and it is from them that you claim compensation. 

Whether the claim is for yourself, or if you are representing a loved one, our personal injury solicitors will tailor their expertise to your case and ensure that you achieve the best possible outcome.
