Retired man receives £3,772 in compensation
A retired solicitor received £3,772 after he sustained injuries whilst travelling on a bus.
The 79 year old was travelling from Manchester on the X41 double decker bus with his wife heading to Rising Bridge. The bus took to a mini roundabout at speed, and whilst attempting to turn right it drove over the hump with both wheels. The force caused the man to be thrown from his seat, and as a result collided with the metal surround at the top of the stairs. This caused significant soft tissue damage to his right shoulder.
Our bus accident solicitors were able to disprove the bus company’s argument and he was awarded £3,772.62 in compensation.

The nurse suffered a soft tissue injury to her back as a result of the collision, and it took her almost a year to fully recover from it.
Our solicitors helped to claim £1,600 in compensation for the accident and her injuries.
