Ms B was travelling home from work by bus as usual. The bus came to a sudden and unexpected stop. Ms B was thrown from her seat and injured.
But who was to blame??
The claim was initially put to the bus company who denied being at fault. They in turn blamed another driver who had pulled out from the side of the road straight in front of the bus. They provided some dash cam footage in support.
The difficulty was that the number plate of this other car could not be clearly made out, so there was no way of tracking down the driver.
This meant that the claim had to be put to the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. They are an organisation that can provide compensation to victims of road traffic accidents caused by uninsured or untraced drivers.
We were able to successfully pursue the claim through them, and Ms B has now received the compensation she deserves.
The claim was handled by Andrew Marsden of our Batley office.
