A man who was injured on a bus that braked suddenly has been awarded GBP 5,500 in injury compensation.
Peter Stone, 51, was a passenger on a Stagecoach bus in Wellingborough on February 15th 2006, when it braked and he was sent flying down the aisle of the vehicle, the Evening Telegraph reports.
He lost consciousness, sustained whiplash and suffered a significant flesh wound to his hip in the accident.
"After four-and-a-half years I have finally got a settlement. I felt so angry. But I’m moving on and … I’m going to start a new life," Mr Stone told the newspaper.
He added that he is going to continue working in early years education.
Another bus company is soon to be at the centre of an injury compensation claim, after a 64-year-old woman was dragged 90 ft along the road by a vehicle.
Janet Lott sustained injuries after she became caught in the doors of a National Express bus as she was exiting it.
