Bus accident compensation after pedestrian dies

The family of a 30-year-old council worker, who died following a collision with a tourist bus in Cambridge, may pursue bus accident compensation from the tour company.

The incident occurred when the victim was crossing the road near Queen's College. A double-decker sightseeing bus ran him over and he sustained severe head injury as a result.

He was taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital by paramedics who arrived on the scene, but unfortunately he later died due to the seriousness of his injuries.

The victim's mother has asked that a 20mph speed limit be put in place along the road on which her son was knocked down.

The police are investigating the road traffic accident and are calling for any witnesses to contact the road policing unit. Further information might help determine liability for the fatal incident.

If the driver of the sightseeing bus is found responsible for the pedestrian's death, the victim's family might decide to launch a bus accident compensation claim against the tour operator.
