Compensation For Bus Passenger Thrown To Floor

Ms B caught the bus to her local town centre one morning, and was forced to stand on the lower deck as all the seats were taken. The bus driver was running late on the route, and according to Ms B (later also attested two by several other passengers) was driving erratically. The bus was approaching a set of traffic lights, when the driver failed to brake early enough, and drove into the back of a stationery van.

The impact was relatively minor, but the force was enough to throw Ms B forward from where she was standing, causing her to strike the back of a seat and fall to the floor. Ms B suffered a broken rib, severe bruising and torn ligaments in her wrist. She was admitted to hospital and had to take 3 weeks off work following the accident, during which time she was in considerable pain and discomfort.

  • Our Legal Advice
Ms B contacted Bartletts Solicitors via our website, having read about a similar case we had handled for an injured bus passenger. We wrote the bus operator, arguing that dangerous driving on the part of the bus driver was the principle cause of the accident and Ms B’s injuries. The fact that the bus had collided with the back of a stationery van showed that the accident must have been the bus driver’s fault. Two other passengers whose details had been taken by Ms B’s husband also confirmed that the bus was being driven too fast at the time, and that the driver had appeared agitated. There was very little that the bus operator was able to argue against these facts, and on admission of liability, Ms B won £4,500 in compensation for her injuries.
