It’s Unlikely That You Will Attend Court
All drivers on the road, as well as tour operators, bus companies, and chartered coach companies are required by law to have insurance policies. When you employ us to represent you our no win no fee* solicitors will contact the relevant insurance companies.
From that point we will try to agree on who is to blame and then reach a bus crash compensation settlement with all parties. It is very unlikely that you will need to attend a court hearing or go to court as most personal injury claims will be settled outside.
If you would like to proceed, or just want to know whether or not you are eligible then you should call us. If we feel there is a case then one of our Leicester bus accident lawyers will represent you and keep you informed each step of the way.
