Anyone who has been injured in a bus accident that was caused by the negligence or fault of another party – be it the bus driver, the bus company, or another vehicle – may be eligible to claim compensation.
The accident could have occurred while you were travelling as a passenger on the bus, getting on or off the bus, or even if you were a pedestrian or driver involved in a collision with a bus.
If you have a valid claim, you may be entitled to various types of compensation, including General Damages which cover the pain, suffering, and loss of amenity caused by your injuries, both physical and emotional. Another form is Special damages which are designed to reimburse you for out-of-pocket expenses you have incurred as a result of the accident.
This may include medical expenses and loss of earnings. The third is Future Damages: In cases where the injuries have long-term consequences, you may be entitled to claim compensation for future care costs, loss of future earnings, and ongoing medical treatments.
