Can I Claim Compensation?
Coach operators have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their passengers, whether this means making sure that their drivers are properly trained, or that passengers are reminded to wear seatbelts. If they fail in this duty of care, and this results in an injury or fatality amongst the passengers, then the injured passenger or their family has the right to make a compensation claim.
Coach accidents can have serious, sometimes tragic consequences, and it is therefore important that victims receive compensation for loss of earnings, medical fees and rehabilitation costs.
Has Lanyon Bowdler Handled Coach Accident Claims Before?
Neil Lorimer , Partner and head of the personal injury department, has spent many years dealing with the consequences of serious coach accidents, and his experience and expertise makes him your number one choice if you find yourself a victim of a coach accident.
In response to the tragic London-to-Aberdeen National Express coach crash on 3 January 2007, Neil Lorimer commented, “I was very concerned to read from the initial reports of the London crash that many of the passengers suffered appalling injuries, and some were not wearing seat belts. Following a change in the law only last September, coach operators must take reasonable steps (such as a safety announcement or prominent sign on the seat) to notify passengers of the need to use seat belts. But if insufficient steps are taken, or there is not a safety enforcement culture, it’s pointless. Maybe there needs to be a sanction for coach operators if passengers are not belted up."
