Considering the number of people who travel by coach every day, it is statistically speaking an incredibly safe way to travel. However, as with any form of travel there always remains an element of risk. This can include the risk of tripping over upon trying to embark or being injured by falling luggage, all the way up to a serious traffic collision. Such injuries are thankfully rare, but when they occur they can be potentially devastating for the injured party. A serious injury can lead to having to take time off work, as well as affecting future earning potential. It can also aggravate other existing conditions, or in extreme cases have a major impact on your quality of life for years to come.

Can you claim compensation for coach accidents?

In exactly the same way as you can claim for any accident on the road, you can claim for coach accidents. In the unfortunate event that you or someone close to you suffers an injury arising from coach travel, there may be grounds for a compensation claim if the injury occurred as a result of another party’s negligence. This could be somebody spilling a hot drink on you, or it could be rather more serious, for example an injury caused by a lack of seatbelts on the coach or by careless driving.
