Can I receive bus accident compensation?

Your entitlement to compensation after a bus accident will depend on the circumstances of your accident including who was at fault. Making a claim involves a number of steps and you should be aware that strict time limits also apply for bus accident compensation. To ensure you are able to claim compensation following a bus accident you should:

  1. Call 000
  2. Seek medical attention
  3. Complete a police report
  4. Take photographs and gather as much information as possible
  5. Get the bus driver’s contact information including the bus number and identification
  6. Get contact information from eyewitnesses
  7. Contact us at The Personal Injury Lawyers immediately

While buses are one of the safest modes of transport due to stringent safety standards, when accidents do occur, they can result in serious injuries to passengers or bystanders. Bus accident victims may be unable to work and require ongoing medical care which can be expensive. If you have sustained an injury on a bus due to another person’s negligence then you should consider making a compensation claim to help with your recovery.

What kinds of injuries can you claim compensation for?

When it comes to bus accident compensation  consider compensable bus accident injuries, we often think of injury claims that involve pedestrians, cyclists or other vehicles. Yet bus passengers are not immune to injuries caused during major or minor incidents.

Bus and coach accidents are commonly caused when the driver or operator of the vehicle moves unexpectedly or brakes suddenly, causing people to fall from seats, in overcrowded aisles or down entry/exit stairs.

Common bus accident injuries can include:

  • Head and spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
    Lacerations and cuts
  • Internal injuries

Whatever the severity of your injury, and regardless of whether you were a bus passenger or a pedestrian, cyclist or in a traffic accident, you may be entitled to compensation.

What situations commonly entitle people to claim accident compensation?

While no two accidents are ever the same, there are commonalities between circumstances that lead to a bus accident. They are also indicators of whether your compensation claim would be favourable or not. These include:

  • You’re suffering from an injury that is a direct result of when an accident occurred – and if your injuries have affected your ability to work, loss of earnings and your quality of life.
  • Accidents that are the result of poor weather, poor visibility or poor road conditions.
  • Negligent or dangerous driving on behalf of the bus driver or another motorist that influenced or caused the accident.

It’s important to note that in Queensland, all registered vehicles covered by the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance scheme. CTP insurance covers an at-fault driver for personal injury claims, including buses.

That means if the bus driver or another person driving a vehicle who contributed to your personal injury claim was negligent, then you can claim compensation under the CTP scheme.
