Hit By a Bus

While moving on the road it is possible that vehicles may collide and result in a severe accident, causing damage to vehicles and people’s lives. Buses are involved in such accidents and become the cause of death of many people. If a vehicle or a person gets hit by a bus, he is entitled to receive compensation from the driver or the company to which the bus belongs. There are a large number of people who are affected by such accidents. Damage is caused to passengers in the bus as well as the person who has been hit by it.

The people involved in such an accident can file for compensation and act as witness to what led to the collision. However this is not a true in all the cases. The injuries are caused due to the inadequacy of the driver. If you sustain injuries due to the accident, treat them properly and then deal with the damage done to the vehicle. The vehicle may also need repairing and you need funds for that. If you have insurance for your vehicle, your insurer is liable to pay you for the damages. If you were not on fault while the accident occurred, your insurer will still pay you the claim money and will recover the same from the insurer of the person who was at fault.

It is possible that your vehicle is not insured. In such a case, the other party’s insurer will be liable to pay to you. While a person is involved in an accident, injuries are caused and one is entitled to receive compensation for the same. All your medical bills and expenses will be covered under it. If you have received minor injuries, your insurer will compensate you for the amount. You can cover the expenses through the medical insurance you have. If the injury is major, it would not be possible for the victim to apply for the claim. In such a case, any of the close relative can do this for the victim.

Due to the accident it is possible that the person is not able to return back to work for a long period of time. The person and his family may have to go through difficult time because the person may be the only earning member of the family. The loss of income can be easily compensated. The family of the injured person can receive the compensation if the victim who has been hit by a bus dies.

Mrs B was crossing a pedestrian crossing pushing her grandson in a baby buggy when she was knocked to the ground by a car driven by the defendant. The accident caused a complex fracture to her right foot.   Liability was denied as both parties claimed the lights were in their favour. At trial Cooks were successful in proving Mrs B’s case and she was awarded £90,000.00.
"I would like to thank you and all your staff for your courtesy and professionalism in what has been a very distressing time for us all..."
