Bus Accident Compensation

Bus accident compensation and your rights

When it comes to road accident claims, we don't forget about passengers. Did you know that if you're injured in a bus accident that wasn't your fault, you could be entitled to bus accident compensation?

This is because the driver and bus company has a duty of care to protect your health and wellbeing as a passenger.

Although bus accidents are quite rare, it's important to understand your rights should you get hurt while travelling by bus.

Bus accident compensation - can I claim?

You may be able to claim bus accident compensation if:

  • You're injured after your bus collides with another vehicle or object.
  • You're injured in a fall caused by the driver swerving or braking. There must be reasonable evidence of erratic or dangerous driving from your bus driver.
  • You're injured in a fall when the driver pulls away as you're climbing on or off the bus.
  • You're disabled and are injured in a fall when not given enough time to get to your seat before the driver pulls away.

The people we've helped

We've been helping people injured in bus accidents for over 19 years. We don't think you should suffer an injury and not receive the compensation you deserve.

Take Janet from Sussex, for example. She received £12,500 in bus accident compensation after the bus she was travelling on as a passenger swerved sideways to avoid another vehicle. She was thrown from her seat, left unconscious and suffered a severe finger injury. Speaking after her bus accident, she described her help from National Accident Helpline as "absolutely terrific" and she didn't have to go to court.

Janet, Sussex, was awarded £12,500

The bus caught the car and I was flung out of my seat and down the bus by the impact. The next thing I knew I was in and out of consciousness with a severely damaged finger, and paramedics were taking me into an ambulance... I didn’t need to go to court and got £12,500.
