According to the Sunday Sun, Robert Hannigan is taking legal action against tram firm TIE after he sustained fractures to his knee, shoulder and ribs during an incident in Edinburgh in 2009.
The 48-year-old claims the company is liable for his injuries on the grounds it failed to erect proper signs informing people of diversions while it conducted work in the Scottish capital.
Papers filed to the Court of Session in Edinburgh on behalf of Mr Hannigan noted that the lack of signals caused him to step out in front of a Lothian and Borders bus, which he thought was stopped at a red light.
Due to the severity of his injuries, the man spent a period of two months in a wheelchair and his legal documents insisted "there were no signs warning pedestrians".
