Starting a compensation claim for accidents involving a bus
An accident on a bus can have life-altering consequences. Fatalities are thankfully rare, but there are still many common injuries for which people need to make a bus accident claim.
It’s important that you know your rights when it comes to bus safety and bus accident claims, so here are some of the most important facts you should know.
Bus safety and common incidents
Despite their standing areas and lack of seat belts, buses remain a safe mode of transport compared to many other options. However, there are certain things that can happen to put your safety at risk.
Bus accidents can be caused by a bus driver’s carelessness, or the carelessness of another road user. Since passengers are not secured, sudden breaks, swerves or acceleration can have far more severe results than if you were in a car.
Most bus accident claims are made when the bus driver is negligent in their responsibility to ensure the safety of all passengers.
The most common kinds of accident caused in this way are:
- Spillages or clutter left on the floor, causing trips, slips, or falls
- Electric doors closing on the passenger as they board or leave the bus
- Sudden acceleration that doesn’t allow boarding passengers time to settle into a seat
- Sudden braking, causing head injuries and falls
- Poorly maintained, damaged or faulty equipment on the bus
- Loss of concentration, causing a collision with another vehicle or stationary object
- Another road user’s dangerous driving, causing the bus driver to suddenly veer off course
- Poorly maintained road surfaces
- Accidents outside the bus
If any of these situations applies to you, get in touch with our team at AWH Solicitors and find out if you can make a bus accident claim.
Our experienced personal injury solicitors can talk through your case and let you know how you can make a successful claim.
What bus accident compensation covers
If you make a bus accident claim with us, we’ll do everything in our power to get you the compensation you deserve.
The amount awarded in every case will vary, but the final sum will take into account:
- The extent of your injuries
- Any psychological trauma
- Loss of earnings
- Cost of care
- Damage to property
- The cost of adaptions to your home or transport
It doesn’t matter whether or not you consider your injury to be serious. If you were involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault and suffered injury and losses, you have a right to compensation.

Our no-win, no-fee solicitors in Manchester regularly assess the prospects of winning your case at all stages of your claim.
If we are able to offer you a Conditional Fee Agreement for your claim, you will not have to pay our legal costs, however, if you lose your claim you may have to pay your opponent’s legal costs.
Legal expenses insurance, which is often provided with some motor insurance policies, can be used to pay your opponent’s legal fees. To protect you, we take out a legal expenses insurance policy for you when taking on your no-win, no-fee claim, if you do not already have a policy.
Disbursements for legal costs
If you win, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs and disbursements.
Any legal costs which are not paid by your opponent may be deducted from your compensation. However, you will not pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful and not until it has come to the end.
