Public Transport Accidents
Every day in the UK millions of us rely on various forms of public transport. We use these various forms of public transport to get to work, to visit a relative or simply to visit the shops in order to get weekly food shopping; what type of public transport you use and the reason that you are using it doesn't matter, what does matter is that the company you are travelling with owes you a duty of care to get you to your destination safely.
The term public transport refers to buses, coaches, taxis, trains, tubes and even planes and boats; it is whatever transport you are using and paying for. As a customer and passenger you are owed a duty of care that states you will get from A to B on time and in the safest possible manner. Sadly however accidents do happen on a range of these public transport modes that we put our trust in ever day.
If you are one of the unfortunate people who are injured in a public transport accident then you stand a good chance of being able to make a claim for compensation for the injury and suffering that you have faced.
In a public transport accident you could be thrown from your seat on a bus as a result of sudden and sharp breaking, which could leave you with whiplash or arm and leg injuries. On a train you could suffer minor injury from defective steps or luggage racks through to major injury from a severe crash. Also in a taxi you could be suffering serious injury due to dangerous driving. Any cases such as these will probably mean you will be able to bring a claim against the public transport company that resulted in your personal injury.
The injuries that you could sustain from a public transport accident could be anything from broken or fractured bones through to severe head or head trauma; a public transport accident could also be fatal.
