Run Over By a Bus

Many arrangements have been made to protect pedestrians from any accidents. Even after such precautions, thousands of pedestrians suffer injuries every year. Like all other compensation cases, it has to be proved that the accident was caused due to the inadequacy of the bus driver. If possible take the pictures of the accident place and the telephone numbers of the witnesses which will help you claim the compensation. Police have to be contacted immediately after the accident takes place.

A person can claim the expenses he will have to incur for the medical purposes. The compensation would also include the amount that the person would lose due to the inability to return to work because of the injuries. The driver of the bus will have to make the compensation. If the bus belongs to some company or government, the person will be entitled to receive compensation from the same. If a person has been run over by a bus, the case is different from that of a vehicle collision and it makes for a very difficult case.

The best way to claim your compensation is through the bus accident attorneys which will help you calculate the amount that you are entitled for. A case would be filed in most of the cases and to get through it, the attorney’s advice is the best. It is possible that a family member suffers sever injuries or loses his life due to being run over by a bus. In cases of death and major accidents, the solicitors would help you calculate the amount for the financial as well as emotional loss and win the case for you.

Internet is full of websites that offer free advice on such issues and the services of the attorneys can also be availed through internet. It is easy to contact them and get your case handled properly. They are experts in their own fields and have experience of handling such cases in the past. Claim compensation for the type of injury suffered such as spinal cord injuries, paralysis, bone fracture and traumatic brain injuries. The situation here differs a lot from that of being a passenger in the bus. Here the sufferer is the pedestrian and has been hit by the bus for which the driver is at fault. Bus accidents kill many people everyday, make sure you do not fall victim to such an accident and if any of your family does suffer any such injuries, do claim the compensation from the driver or the owner of the bus.

Public Liability
Pedestrian Fall from Bicycle
Miss H was knocked off her bicycle when her front tyre struck a loose paving stone jutting into the road. She sustained a head injury causing severe short term memory loss and mood swings. After 2 years her original Solicitors withdrew from the case as they believed her claim had less than a 50% chance of succeeding. Miss H contacted Cooks who agreed to represent her on a No win No fee basis.

Within 18 months the matter was resolved and Miss H received a settlement cheque of £300,000.00. She told us
"Thank you Cooks for believing in me and my claim. My Solicitor was always available to me and happy to explain each step of the process. The only surprise was how much you managed to obtain for me without the need to go to trial. I will tell all my friends about your great service."
Miss H from London
