Bus Crash Victims to Seek Compensation

May 9th, 2016 | By licnewsadmin

The claims for bus injury compensation are expected to be made once a police investigation into the crash has been completed.

On the 3rd March 2016, there was a three-way collision involving two cars and a bus on the Bridlington Road in Chesterfield. One of the car drivers sustained such serious injuries that they had to be airlifted to the Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham; the other, along with seven passengers on the bus, were taken to the Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

The police then commenced an investigation into the accident, and then proceeded to arrest a thirty-seven year old man on suspicion of dangerous driving which then caused the crash. Since the accident, victims have begun to consult solicitors on the possibility of claiming compensation. These claims are likely to proceed once more headway has been made into the police investigation.

Seventy-year old Mavis Blood, who had been travelling on the number 70 bus at the time of the collision, was diagnosed with a bleed on her brain after she was taken to the Royal Chesterfield Hospital. She also had many deep lacerations on her face. Though she was kept overnight to monitor her condition, doctors determined that she had mercifully escaped the crash without permanent injuries.

Ellen Chapman, Mavis’ granddaughter, made a statement to the Derbyshire Times shortly after the accident. In it, she commented that: “She went to hospital and there was concern because she’s 70 she’s high risk, and they found she’s got a bleed on the brain, likely because she takes blood thinning tablets. They’re monitoring her and hoping the bleed will sort herself out.”

A solicitor representing one of the victims has also commented that “The consequences of such incidents should not be downplayed, as through our work acting on behalf of clients we have seen how crashes of this nature have left victims suffering from not only their physical injuries months after the event, but also the psychological trauma.”
