Accidents on Public Transport

Bus Accidents are the most common public transport

Operators of public transport have a duty of care to their customers.

This means that their vehicles, equipment and facilities should be properly maintained and their staff fully trained to ensure public safety.

If you have been hurt whilst travelling on a bus or coach you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries together with the financial loss you have suffered as a result.

Ridley & Hall’s personal injury team have dealt with cases where passengers have been injured as a result of harsh or severe braking, or where the bus driver has simply not kept a proper look out for elderly passengers making their way down the bus to disembark. Such accidents can have a shocking effect on the elderly and they may never recover from their injuries. Also because most public buses do not have seat belts any harsh braking is likely to have a serious effect on passengers particularly the elderly and the young who do not get the chance to brace

Our friendly and professional personal injury team are here to help you.

Sarah Young, Personal Injury Solicitor 


What our clients say:

  • The case concluded as hoped.  I was at all times treated with courtesy, consideration and empathy by Sarah Young who was at all times professional yet approachable in all matters relating to a very complex case. I personally thank her on behalf of myself and children for the way she conducted my case which brought great relief and a most satisfactory conclusion and will help us move forward.

  • I can’t thank you enough for the way the claim was handled. After being in the accident, the thought of making a claim seemed like a lengthy and quite daunting procedure to take on, but you were really helpful and communication was brilliant throughout the whole thing. There was never a point where I felt confused or left in the dark about anything that was unfolding with the claim and the way you handled things was amazing!

  • My claim was handled very professionally and dealt with really well and quickly on Sam’s part I appreciate all that Sam and the team did.

  • My first meeting with Sarah  Young was really great. She seemed to care about my situation and gave good advice on what we should expect throughout our case. My case has now come to an end thanks to Sarah. I would highly recommend her services to others in similar situations.
