Bus Driver loses control at the wheel

Elizabeth was a passenger on a double decker bus, which was stationery at a bus stop, when a single storey bus drove head on into it. The driver of the other bus had suffered a seizure at the wheel.

Elizabeth sustained a whiplash injury to her neck and upper back in the impact and was in severe pain for a couple of months with ongoing symptoms for up to ten months afterwards.

We took on Elizabeth's claim and sought to prove the negligence of the bus driver who caused the crash. It became clear from his medical records that he was unfit to drive, but had not informed his employer of his medical condition.

This was a difficult case which required extensive investigation and medical reports. The claim went to trial and Elizabeth was awarded £2,500 by the Court.
