Public Transport Accidents

The operators of public transport have a duty of care to their customers. Their vehicles, equipment and facilities should be properly maintained and their staff fully trained to ensure public safety.

In the event that you are injured on or by public transport, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation against the operator.

There are safety rules that must be followed by all forms of transport, including buses, planes, taxis and trains.

Causes and types of injuries caused by public transport might include:

  • Falls, slips and trips
  • Broken limbs
  • Whiplash or spinal injury
  • Head injury

Do not assume that, because you were hurt in an ‘accident’, you do not have a case. It may be that the transport operator should have taken more steps to ensure your safety.
