Matthew Garling was not only professional, but a real people person. I always felt that he was being straightforward, honest and realistic with me, although in the end he negotiated a better outcome... than I had ever expected at the outset. Before meeting Matthew I had interviews with two other firms but didn't like either of them. So glad I chose Garling & Co!read more

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Are there time limits or restrictions on when I can make a bus accident claim?

Being in a bus accident is likely an extremely traumatic experience, and may have affected you physically, emotionally or financially.

It’s important to get in touch with qualified bus accident lawyers and make your bus accident compensation claim as soon as possible after the incident has occurred. Strict time limits apply for making bus accident compensation claims, and if you miss the cut-off then it may prevent your ability to receive compensation.

2. What can I claim bus accident compensation for?

Buses are a public service provided to you by the state or area you live in, and should be a safe mode of transport for all commuters. If you’ve been involved in a bus accident, you may be able to claim for:

  • Loss of past and future earnings
  • Pain and suffering damages
  • Return to work services
  • Medical, hospital and rehabilitation services
  • Cost of home and vehicle modifications
  • Travel and home nursing expenses
  • Psychological suffering
  • Loss of superannuation

The experienced and professional bus accident lawyers at Garling & Co are here to help you through the bus accident claims process and provide you with excellent legal advice.

4. Who will pay the bus injury compensation?

If you are successful in receiving compensation for your public transport accident claim, the compensation amount will likely be paid by the insurance company of the bus operator. All bus companies are covered by insurance to protect their drivers in the case of accidents, so the individual driver themselves will not be liable to pay.

5. How much does it cost to make a bus accident claim?

We know that sustaining an injury (whether physical or psychological) is already a very stressful time and going through the public transport accident claims process can add to this stress.
