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. 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 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.
If an accident occurred involving a bus, train or private taxi and the organisation operating them is at fault, you might be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Paschal O’Hare Solicitors are expert solicitors at identifying who is at fault and how to navigate a typically complex Public Transport Accident case.
