Passenger suing Stagecoach after breaking pelvis

Passenger suing Stagecoach after breaking pelvis 2347

Broken bones suffered during an incident on a bus will lead to legal action being taken against the vehicle's operator.

Lesley Hunter fractured her pelvis when she fell over in Kempston last month and has now decided to sue Stagecoach - a company with 18,000 members of staff - on the grounds that the negligence of the driver caused her injury, Bedfordshire News reports.

Ms Hunter was going up the stairs on the number one service in the town and claims that the driver pulled away from the stop too sharply, causing her to slip and hurt herself.

The 45-year-old - who expects to be on crutches for another six weeks - is now appealing for fellow passengers who witnessed the incident to come forward and help her case.

"At the time I thought it would just be a bad bruise, but the next day I was in sheer agony," she commented.
