Bus Accidents

Can I claim?

You should be able to feel safe when using public transport in the UK.

This is because drivers of buses and coaches are trained and tested to a very high standard and their vehicles are generally well maintained.

However, this does not stop hundreds of bus and coach accidents from happening every year, where passengers are injured. Buses often carry large numbers of passengers – up to 70 at any one time  -  who sometimes have to stand for all or part of their journeys, and a lack of seatbelts can also put passengers at risk.

Have you been injured?

Perhaps you have been injured while travelling by bus or coach? Or you may have been involved in an accident with a bus while driving or being a passenger in a car? If so, our team here at Recovery Assist is here to help you claim – and win – the compensation you may be entitled to.

Injuries might include:

  • Whiplash
  • Cuts and bruises
  • Serious injuries
  • Paralysis

What can I claim for?

  • Injuries sustained as a bus passenger
  • A bus crashing into the back of your vehicle
  • Collisions between buses and any other vehicle
  • A bus knocking you from a bicycle/motorbike

Types of Bus and Coach Accidents

Accidents can happen for a number of reasons; drivers driving round corners too fast, braking and accelerating sharply or being involved in a collision. In these situations, passengers can be thrown from their seats which can result in injury.

Perhaps you have cut yourself on a sharp, damaged or faulty fixture or fitting on the bus? Perhaps you have suffered a fall? Slips and trips are common injuries when getting on and off a bus.

Accidents are not always the fault of the driver but sometimes careless behaviour can lead directly to you being injured. That’s why it is important to remember, that it is not your fault!

If you have been hurt or injured as a result of bad driving on the part of the bus driver, it is very likely you will be able to make a successful claim for compensation against the bus company who employs the driver. By law, both the bus company and the driver will be fully insured against any claims made against them.

That’s why here at Recovery Assist, we believe it is very important you receive the compensation you deserve. In certain circumstances if your injuries are serious, this compensation can help you rebuild your life.


If you have been involved in an accident which wasn’t your fault then you may be entitled to claim compensation which can help you if:

  • You need money to pay your bills if you can’t work due to your injuries
  • You need money to pay for private medical treatment, rehabilitation, or changes to your home such as the installation of ramps

Compensation will also reflect the pain and suffering you have been through, and if you have had to give up work it will also reflect that loss of future income.

You may feel daunted by the thought of making a claim but our legally trained Recovery Assist personal injury solicitors can handle your bus accident or coach accident claim for you, making the whole process simple and worry-free.

Most of all we will make sure that you get the compensation you deserve. And don’t forget, our personal injury solicitors work on a “no win-no fee” basis.
