Buses: they seem like an easy, hassle-free option to travel but sometimes they can be quite the opposite. If you have been a passenger on a bus that has been involved in a road traffic accident you are entitled by law to claim compensation. Most people do not realize that they can claim compensation, but if you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligent actions you should not suffer in silence and get the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.
Some examples of bus accidents can include
- You were a passenger on a bus when a negligent vehicle collided with the rear of the bus causing your injuries.
- You were a passenger on a bus when the driver of the bus negligently collided with another vehicle causing your injuries.
- You were a passenger on a bus when the bus driver negligently pulled away from a bus stop too harshly causing your injuries.
So, how do you claim compensation?
First of all, you need to contact an expert personal injury solicitor who will guarantee you get 100% compensation and not only that but guarantee you a genuine win no fee agreement. We do exactly that – we are specialist personal injury solicitors who work harder for you to make sure you get the maximum amount of compensation possible.
The claim process is simple and easy.
To get your claim started we will complete a Clam Notification Form with you which is a form containing all the details and circumstances of your accident. We will ask you for all the relevant information and all you have to do is provide it! Simple as that. Some information which is good to keep a note of is…
- The accident date, time, and location
- The bus registration number, route number, and drivers name
- If the bus is not the negligent party then the registration number of the negligent party at fault
Once we have completed your Claim Notification Form we can submit the form electronically to the third-party insurer. This cuts of any delays of forms being lost/delayed in the post and makes it a much more efficient and effective procedure. The third-party insurer has one business day to acknowledge receipt of the form and a further fifteen business days to investigate and respond in relation to liability.
Once we have a response the next stage will be to obtain medical evidence in order to value your claim. Obtaining medical evidence is simple too, we will organize a medical appointment at a time and place that is convenient for you, all you have to do is attend, let the independent medical professional examine you and have a chat about the accident and they will then produce a medical report which is your medical evidence. This report will help value your compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, and any loss of enjoyment.
The next stages are all down to the hard work of an expert personal injury solicitor to value your claim and negotiate with the negligent party’s insurer to give you the maximum amount of compensation.
