Public Transport Claims in Manchester, Blackburn and Lancashire

When you travel by means of public transport you expect to be delivered to your destination safely.

However, there are often instances where drivers or staff members of public transport fail to act in a reasonable manner and as a result you sustain injuries which were not your fault.

If you have been unfortunate to have suffered injuries whilst using public transport, you could be entitled to compensation.

As one of the most experienced Road Traffic Accident departments in the North West of England, we can make sure you are taken care of every step of the way.


Specialist Road Traffic Accident Solicitors

At Curtis Law Solicitors we have represented individuals and groups of people who have been injured as a result of negligence of a driver or staff member whilst using public transport.

This can be via any of following means or more;

  • Bus
  • Coach
  • Taxi
  • Minibus
  • Train
  • Cruise ship
  • Ferry

Whether the driver of the bus you were a passenger on has collided with another vehicle or has failed to allow you to sit down on a seat before setting off in an abrupt manner causing you injury, Curtis Law Solicitors will push to obtain the compensation you may be entitled to as a result of your injuries.

We can also assist with the provision of treatment for any pain or suffering you have endured.

Whilst you are an innocent passenger using public transport you are owed a duty of care by the driver of your vehicle, whether the accident was the fault of your driver or down to the actions of another vehicle, our specialist Road Traffic Accident Solicitors will help you pursue your claim against the negligent party.

Conditional Fee/Damages Based Agreements

We undertake risk assessments on all such matters and aim to complete the same within 24 hours of receipt of instructions on straightforward matters, or 72 hours of receipt of substantial papers, if applicable. The length of time taken on the risk assessment will vary according to the instructions and papers but we would expect to spend in the region of 30 minutes on straightforward matters. A more accurate timeframe can be given on a  case by case basis if required. We do not charge for the initial risk assessment.

If a matter is accepted it would, as a rule of thumb, be subject to a 25% Success Fee and After the Event Insurance (ATE) Premium deduction. The level of Success Fee and ATE Premium will vary depending on the nature and complexity of the case and the exact Success Fee as a percentage of damages and ATE Premium will be confirmed to you before you sign any retainer with us.

Under the terms of a Conditional Fee/Damages Based Agreement, you would ordinarily only have to pay the Success Fee and ATE Premium yourself. If however, you breach the agreement you would then become responsible for our full costs.
