Bus, Train or Taxi Accident Solicitors

Public transport services and taxi operators in Northern Ireland have a duty of care to keep members of the public as safe as possible whilst providing their service.

Common public transport accidents in Northern Ireland happen on:

  • Translink operated buses, including the Glider.
  • Private hire taxis
  • Northern Ireland Railways 

Passengers that are involved in an accident whilst using public transport or a taxi service might suffer from relatively minor injuries such as soft tissue damage to more serious bone fractures or brain injuries.

Accidents involving public transport vehicles, including taxis, are very common. They can be the fault of the service’s employees or the fault of another vehicle if it’s on the roads. Larger vehicles like trains can also have broken seating and slippery floors.
