Past this, we’ll stick around to ensure you have access to the support you need.

Can I claim for an injury sustained while on public transport?

Yes. All public transport companies have a duty to ensure the safety of passengers at all times. As soon as a passenger steps into a bus, train or taxi, it’s the driver’s responsibility to ensure that no harm comes to them as a result of using this method of transport.  Therefore, if you sustain an injury while on any method of public transport that was not your fault, you are within your rights to claim for compensation.

What is whiplash?

Whiplash is the term given to a neck injury caused from sudden movement, and tends to be synonymous with car accidents as this is where they most often occur. Sudden movement of the head causes damages to the tendons in the neck, causing a lingering pain that can impact on a person’s daily life. It can take 6-12 hours for the pain of whiplash to develop, but can last a number of days. While this is classed as a minor injury compared to many road traffic accidents, you can still make a claim if the whiplash you suffered affected your mobility and ability to work. Speak to our solicitors today for more information on whiplash claims.

How is my road traffic accident claim processed?

After meeting with our specialist road traffic accident team for a consultation to discuss the circumstances of your injury, our solicitors will get working on building a strong claim for compensation. Once we have all the evidence we need, such as witness statements and medical records, we will contact the party at fault and request that they admit liability and pay compensation towards you, the victim.

They can both accept liability and agree to pay the amount proposed, or make a counter offer. We will then reach an agreement through tactical negotiation. If the party refuse liability altogether, Court Proceedings may be necessary to determine who was at fault and how much should be paid in compensation. 

If you’ve been injured through an accident that wasn’t your fault, it’s in your best interests to speak to a personal injury lawyer who specialises in road traffic collisions. At Talbots Law, our team are always happy to speak to new clients looking to claim. Just give us a call on 0800 118 1500 to get started.
