Types of Injuries on Public Transport

The injuries that can be sustained due to an accident on public transport are wide ranging and include:

  • whiplash;
  • broken bones;
  • spinal injuries; and
  • head injuries.

These injuries can occur in a number of different ways, for example where the vehicle you are traveling in collides with another vehicle or an object, where the driver of the vehicle breaks or accelerates too heavily, or due to the poor condition of the vehicle, for example slippery or uneven flooring. However serious or not you might consider your injuries to be, if you have been involved in an accident like this you could be due compensation. Get in touch with the personal injury solicitors at Jones Whyte today and we will let you know if you have a valid claim.

Who is Responsible for Your Public Transport Accident?

Companies that operate public transport have a duty of care to protect passengers from injury, and must abide by the applicable health and safety standards. However, it can be difficult to establish which body is at fault when you are injured while travelling on public transport. For example, different companies are responsible for the maintenance of trains, platforms and tracks. This is why it is vital that you seek expert legal advice so that you bring a direct and thorough claim against the right organisation.
