How much is my coach injury claim worth?
Hundreds of people are hurt on coaches every year and claims can be worth several thousands of pounds. Find out how much your injury could be worth with our 30-second claims calculator or call one of our friendly advisors on 0800 175 7900.
Will I have to pay to claim?
We believe in justice for all. So Claims Direct is proud to offer No Win No Fee claims to around 98% of our injury claims customers. This guarantees that you will never be out of pocket, because we only get a fee when we win the compensation you deserve. Many of our customers tell us that this gives them the peace of mind they need when they have to make a compensation claim.
Will I have to have a medical for a bus or coach injury claim?
Yes, it's important that we can prove the extent of your injuries in order to make a claim for you. So we will usually arrange for you to see a local doctor who will check how badly you have been hurt, and also say how long they think your injuries may take to heal. This is important, as even injuries that didn't seem too bad at the time of the incident can take a long time to recover from, and your compensation claim has to reflect this fact.
Will I have to go to court for a bus or coach injury claim?
Every bus and coach company has to have insurance for its vehicles, and the passengers they carry. So, in most cases, your claim will be settled between your Claims Direct lawyer and the bus or coach company's insurers. Even so, a very few injury compensation cases do go to court, but this is usually only when very serious injuries have been caused.
What sort of coach injuries can I claim for?
Obviously, like every vehicle on the road, coaches can be involved in road accidents; and whether you were wearing a seat belt or not at the time, these can cause a variety of injuries, from whiplash to cuts caused by broken glass, all the way through to life-changing injuries where a coach has been in an accident at high speed.
Fortunately, most injuries on coaches aren't massively serious, and often happen when:
- The coach has set off before you were seated, causing you to fall
- You have tripped over an obstacle in the aisle
- You have slipped on a wet step when getting on or off the coach
In all of these cases, the coach operator may be at fault for your injuries. So if you have been injured on a coach and it wasn't your fault, why not speak to one of our friendly advisors today.
What can I claim for?
If you have been injured on a coach trip, it's possible that you will have a range of losses and expenses to worry about, as well as the pain and distress caused by the injury itself. Where that's the case, you may be entitled to claim compensation for:
- Loss of earnings
- Pain and suffering
- Alternative transport
- Medical expenses
- Trauma counselling
All of these things can add up to cost you a lot of money, which is why it always pays to ask us about the chances of making a No Win No Fee compensation claim. Talk to one of our friendly advisors now on 0800 175 7900.
