Public transport compensation claims in NSW
In NSW, the New South Wales Road and Traffic Compensation Scheme governs all claims for compensation for public transport accidents. You can claim compensation if you have been travelling on a state transit bus, long distance coach, light rail, or tourist bus which has been involved in an accident in which you have sustained serious injuries. Accidents can include incidents in which a driver brakes too hard, sending passengers flying forward, resulting in injuries.
