Tottenham bus that struck low bridge did not have valid insurance, say Levenes
Levenes are acting for 3 of the passengers to pursue claims for injuries sustained when a private party bus in which they were travelling crashed into a railway bridge in Tottenham, north London, slicing the roof off the bus. It has now emerged that the insurance of the bus company involved may have been void or invalid.
A further 23 people were on board when the accident occurred. Levenes are calling for an investigation as to how it came to be that the bus was on a road where there was a low bridge and how the bus company could operate without valid insurance. It appears that the insurers of the bus company will deal with the claims but will claim back from the bus company for the compensation bill which could run in to tens of thousands of pounds.
Levenes would also like to talk to anyone who was on the bus or witnessed the incident if they have not yet come forward. If you can help, please call Lyuba Karakaneva on 020 8826 1473.
