Can I make a pedestrian injury claim?

If you were injured while travelling on a plane, train, bus, ferry, taxi, in an Uber or any other form of public transport, we can help you claim the compensation you deserve. If you were injured in an accident.


The risk of being injured on public transport is not just limited to being a passenger in a road traffic accident or other collision as injuries can also be sustained as a result of objects falling from luggage racks, door mechanisms and other hazards.


If you’ve suffered an injury whilst using public transport our expert solicitors could help you claim compensation for your injury and you may be able to make a No Win No Fee claim.

Some of the common public transport injuries include:

  • Trips and falls from public transport coming to a sudden stop
  • Road traffic accidents as a bus, taxi, Uber passenger
  • Rail, Maritime and Plane incidents and disasters
  • Limbs getting trapped between a train or tram and the platform
  • Violence from other passengers.

How to Make a Claim

When you get in touch with us about your public transport injury we will guide you through the whole process of making a claim and support you at every stage.

The process starts with gathering evidence of the accident and you can help us by providing us with as much information as possible about the event and the injuries you sustained.

To evaluate your claim we will need to know:

  • Where and when the accident occurred?
  • If there were any witnesses?
  • Was there any CCTV / dash-cam footage of the accident?
  • What injuries have you sustained?
  • Has the other party admitted fault?
  • Did the emergency services attend?
  • Do you require ongoing treatment or rehabilitation?

Your claim specialist will use this information to fully understand the circumstances of your injury and establish that you have a claim.

We will also:

  • Evaluate the circumstances surrounding the accident.
  • Arrange for vehicle repairs and replacement vehicle hire.
  • Arrange medical treatment if you haven’t already received it.
  • Assess your loss of earnings through having time off work.

The first step is to get in touch with us so that one of our claim experts can conduct a free, no-obligation consultation with you.

What happens when I make a claim?

When you contact us, you’ll speak to one of our legally trained advisors, who will be able to tell you within minutes whether you have a valid claim or not.

If you do wish to proceed with a claim, we will then put you in touch with a specialist solicitor who is an expert in traffic accident claims. They will keep in close contact with you throughout and they will be able to explain the process and answer any questions you may have.

We know that making a claim can seem daunting, but our solicitors work very hard to ensure that your claim is dealt with diligently and efficiently.

How much will my claim be worth?

As with most other personal injury claims there is no set rule for how much compensation you might receive for an injury sustained whilst using Public Transport, but we will give you an indication of a likely settlement when we evaluate your claim.

As the range of injuries from such incidents can be from relatively minor bruisings or whiplash to life changing injuries, the amount of settlement will depend on the extent of your injuries, how it has impacted your life and how much time a full recovery will take.

However, in addition to damages for any injury, pain and suffering, you may also be able to claim for any loss of earnings as well as for the cost of any medical treatment or rehabilitation that may be required.

Our personal injury solicitors are very experienced in this area, and will aim to get you the maximum compensation available for your injury

Can I Make A No Win No Fee Claim?

Most of the personal injury and traffic accident claims taken on by our panel of solicitors are handled on a no win no fee basis.

This gives you peace of mind in knowing that you will not have to pay any money up front and there will be no financial risk if your case is unsuccessful.

If your case is successful, you will only be expected to pay a contribution to your solicitor’s fees once the case has been resolved. The costs paid are usually a percentage of the compensation awarded and will always be agreed with you, before your claim proceeds.
