Although buses are a very safe way to travel figures suggest that you are much less likely to be injured as a passenger on a bus than in a car. Accidents can still happen. Being involved in an accident as a passenger on a bus can cause serious injuries. If you have been injured whilst travelling on a bus or coach, then you may be able to pursue bus accident injury compensation. It is important though that you take down a few details about the accident to help your road traffic accident claims lawyer with your case. Details such as the time, date and place of the accident and the route number, driver name and registration number of the bus you were travelling on. You should also report your injury to the driver immediately and retain your bus ticket.

It is the bus company and drivers responsibility to ensure your safety whilst you are using their services. This includes ensuring the bus and its facilities are suitable for use, as well as the driver driving responsibly and carefully. Unfortunately, many road users show little respect for buses and this can result in accidents. Incidents where cars try to overtake buses at inappropriate times, or fail to stop when they are pulling out, are frequent causes of accidents. In cases where it is not the bus drivers fault, you can claim for your injury from the motorists insurance. In cases where the bus company is at fault, they have insurance in place to compensate injuries.
Whiplash is a common injury sustained by bus passengers, and it may be possible that you have a case if you have suffered such an injury.
Below is a list of some injuries that can happen whilst travelling on a bus:
- Being thrown violently forward by sudden braking or acceleration
- Being thrown off your seat by the bus taking a corner too fast
- Slipping or tripping on the stairs of double-decker buses
- Slipping on wet floors of the bus
- Falling or tripping getting on or off of the bus
