Compensation For Man Injured At Bus Stop

A recent client of ours was injured when he visited a bus shelter that had been vandalized the previous evening and cut himself. The company responsible for maintenance of the bus shelter had been informed, however no action had been taken to repair the damage. Mr T suffered a deep gash to his leg after sitting down on a piece of broken glass.

As his wound was bleeding profusely, a taxi driver took him to hospital where he required stitches, and his injury was subsequently recorded in his medical notes. He rang Transport for London (TFL) to complain, but they stated that they had not been aware of the damage, and hence had not had the opportunity to repair it. After investigation this statement turned out to be false, as the broken panes of glass had been reported two days prior to Mr T’s accident.

  • Our Legal Advice
After engaging Bartletts Solicitors to handle his personal injury claim, we contacted TFL on Mr T's behalf, stating that the shelter reference number and location details had been reported to them, but they had failed to rectify the problem within a reasonable time-frame, despite being aware of the hazard. The company had negligently breached the duty of care they owed Mr T, by failing to ensure that their property was in a reasonably safe condition at the time he was present in the bus shelter. In fact, the shelter was in a dangerous condition and should have been made completely safe at the earliest opportunity after it was reported. No action had been taken, and this represented negligence on the part of TFL. We were able to negotiate a compensation settlement of £2,750 for Mr T, after TFL acknowledged partial liability for the accident.
