Injured while on a bus - £1,680 compensation

Our personal injury claims handler, Sam Ord, has recently won a case on behalf of a woman who was injured while travelling on a bus.

The client was a standing passenger on the bus when the incident occurred. As the bus began to turn right, the left hand side of the bus hit a lamppost. This caused the client to be thrown to the left side of the bus, injuring her shoulder and arm on a metal bar.

The bus company initial denied liability, however the claim proceeded to trial where the client won her claim and she received £1,680 in compensation.
