Were You Injured by a Bus or Truck Accident?

Accidents involving buses and trucks can be severe due to the size and weight of these vehicles. If you or a loved one were injured in such an accident, you might face a long road to recovery and you may struggle to understand your legal rights and options. 

According to data published by the Australian Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications and the Arts (DITRDCA), hundreds of bus and truck occupants are hospitalised with injuries annually across Australia. Of those people, 20-30 per cent suffered high-threatening and life-threatening injuries.

Making a Car Accident Injury Claim

Around fifty per cent of multi-vehicle truck collisions involve vehicles travelling in opposite directions, resulting in devastating head-on accidents that can leave occupants with severe injuries. Common truck occupant injuries include: 

  • Whiplash
  • Head trauma
  • Neck and spine damage
  • Fractures
  • Internal organ damage
  • Burns

Severe injuries and trauma can also cause chronic pain and PTSD in truck accident victims. These long-lasting health problems can impact the general enjoyment of life, the ability to work and support a family, and the future ability to drive a vehicle. 

 Fortunately, there is compensation and support available for truck and bus related injury claims. At CLP Legal, we have extensive experience handling claims related to truck injuries. We can help you to understand your rights and options, and we will provide the skilled legal assistance you need to obtain the total truck and bus related injury claims compensation you deserve. 

Making a Claim for Truck Accident Injuries

How to Seek Compensation

Recovery from a large-vehicle accident can be costly, both in terms of your health and finances, especially if you have suffered catastrophic damage that has permanently altered your life. If you were harmed in a truck accident, it is vital to understand your options for seeking compensation in Western Australia. 

What to Do

Filing a claim can help cover the costs of your medical treatment and future medical expenses and provide financial assistance if you cannot work. In some cases, you may also be eligible for pain and suffering damages. 

What You Need to Know

While the claims process may seem daunting, engaging an experienced motor vehicle accident lawyer can help make it as smooth and stress-free as possible. With the help of legal assistance, pursuing a claim will give you the best chance of securing the full benefits you deserve. 

Helping You with Bus Related Injury Claims

No one expects to be injured while travelling on a bus, whether on public transport or a charter bus. However, passengers and drivers can be hurt in bus-related accidents, and they may need hospitalisation. 

 Bus trauma can occur in several ways, and occupants may be injured while: 

  • Falling while boarding or exiting the vehicle
  • Tripping while walking down the length of the vehicle
  • Being thrown from the seat during hard turns or braking
  • Collision with another vehicle or multiple vehicles
  • Bus rollover or swerving accident

Legal Assistance with Truck and Bus Related Injury Claims

Here at CLP Legal, we are experts on the complexities of bus accident claims and can help you understand the exact types of compensation you are entitled to receive.

 You could make a motor vehicle accident claim if you suffered injuries in a bus-related mishap. If your injury was the fault of an operator, you might have the option of lodging a public liability/negligence claim.
