There is usually a duty of care that needs to be followed by public transport providers. If you wish to make a bus injury claim it is important to establish whether the duty of care existed and if it was breached, causing your accident.
If the duty of care was breached, our expert team can help you make a claim for compensation from the transport service provider. This may be from a private hire bus and coach provider, local bus company, school bus or coach trip company.
