Bus accident news – Man who suffered personal injury to claim compensation
In January 2012, the man had been crossing the street when he was hit by the vehicle. He was rushed to hospital where he spent a week receiving emergency treatment.
He suffered a fractured skull and serious injuries to his arms and legs. The damage was so severe that he had to have metal pins and plates inserted into his limbs to secure them.
The incident had a serious effect on his everyday life. He now needs help performing basic tasks and has to walk with the aid of a walking stick.
After speaking to a personal injury solicitor, he is now planning to make a compensation claim against the operators of the bus.
A spokesman for the company said that the matter was now in the hands of their insurers.
