Tyres an incredibly important safety feature that help control vital aspects of the vehicle such as handling and braking. It is required by law that you regularly maintain the standard of your tyres in order to prevent any accidents from occurring, but if you are on public transportation such as a bus then this would be out of your hands.

There are a number of situations where you may be eligible to make a claim as a result of an accident caused by faulty tyres on public transport, with some common examples including:

·         Accidents which were caused by excessive speeding

·         Claims if you have been involved in a collision

·         Claims against poorly maintained tyres.

Who could I be eligible to make a claim against?

If you are looking to make a claim for compensation as a result of negligence while on public transport, then there are a number of people who could be at fault, with the bus company being the most likely suspect.
