“Absolutely amazing. I could not believe that I received £8,500 in compensation. I came to Michael McGee on a whim and he and the team dealt with my case. I did not think I would get anything and I did not think a solicitor would even take the case on. My case was unusual and I was not sure if there was any point in pursuing it. I kept 100% of my compensation as well. I am really grateful to Michael, he provided a great service. I did not have to do anything and only visited the office a couple of times.”
Bus Accident Compensation Claims FAQs
We know that you probably have questions about making a claim for compensation after a bus accident or coach accident and below are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions. If you would like to know anything else, please ring us and we will be happy to answer your queries.
How do I know if I have a claim for bus accident compensation?
If you have been injured in an incident involving a bus or coach that was not your fault or not entirely your fault, then you may well be able to claim compensation for your injuries. You will need to show that negligence on behalf of a third party, such as the bus driver or bus company, caused your injuries.
We can let you know whether you have a potential claim and if you would like to go ahead, we can start the claims process on your behalf.
How much compensation will I receive for a bus accident?
The amount of compensation awarded for bus accidents depends on the severity of the injuries sustained. The payment you receive is intended to compensate you for the pain and suffering you have been caused and the loss of amenity or ability to do things you were able to do before. You should also be compensated for any financial losses you have incurred, such as loss of earnings or the cost of having someone to help you with your day-to-day life.
If you speak to one of our personal injury experts, they will be able to talk through the level of your injuries with you and give you some idea of the amount you might receive.

How long will my bus accident compensation claim take?
If your injuries are fairly minor and you are not likely to suffer any long-term complications, then it may be possible to settle your claim in just a few months if the other side admits liability.
If your injuries are more severe, then you may be advised to wait before agreeing on a sum in compensation to see what your prognosis is.
Similarly, if the other side denies liability, then your claim may have to go to court, which will mean that your case takes longer. We will ensure that you are fully supported throughout and, where necessary, we can apply for interim payments on your behalf.
“Having very little insight into the process of claims for road traffic accidents I didn’t know how I could or even would claim. Unfortunately I sustained injuries as a result of the trauma from the accident and was encouraged by my nephew to let McGee Solicitors undertake my claim. I was guided by the firm to the process and was updated on a regular basis regarding status of claim and always given clarification and information. I would encourage anyone who like me was ‘green’ to the process of claiming let McGee Solicitors represent them. I can only thank them right now for their help and the positive outcome of my claim.”
How do I claim for compensation after a bus accident?
If you want to make a claim for bus accident compensation, your first step should be to speak to an expert personal injury solicitor. If you ask one of our team to represent you, we will write to the other side and advise them that you will be making a claim. We will also ask our medical experts to prepare reports in respect of your injuries.
We will exchange evidence with the other side, to include the circumstances of the accident and medical evidence and we will try to negotiate a settlement on your behalf at this stage. If you receive an offer of settlement, we will discuss this with you and let you know whether we consider it to be a fair offer or whether we believe that you could achieve a higher payment.
