Coach Accident Claims
Coach accidents can result in serious injuries. Passengers have very little protection against injuries whilst they are on board a coach and since they are hardly to be blamed for a coach accident, they are usually in a strong position to seek financial compensation following an accident.
If you have been involved in a coach accident, you may be able to make coach accident claims.
Common Causes of Coach Accidents
Coach accidents can take place under numerous circumstances. Given below are some examples of how passengers may sustain injuries whilst on board a coach.
- Coach getting involved in a crash with another vehicle
- Driver error causing road accidents
- Mechanical problem with the coach
- Adverse weather conditions
A passenger can also sustain injuries as a result of falling in the gangway of the coach. Injuries can also be sustained if a passenger loses his balance whilst making his way to the seat or to the exit. This mostly happens when the driver moves the vehicle without realising that the passenger is not yet seated or has gotten out of the coach.
Falls in the gangway can occur as a result of litter being dropped and spillages.
Public transport operators owe a duty of care to their passengers. It is their duty to ensure the safety of passengers whilst travelling. If it can be established that the coach company had been negligent in their duty, it may be possible for a passenger to make a compensation claim.
