A man whose left ear was partly sliced off in a London sightseeing bus accident is making a personal injury claim against the tour operator. The 49-year-old was on the double-decker bus with his young son when the vehicle crashed into a tree, tearing off the roof and sending debris into the air.
The accident caused serious injuries for the father; half of his left ear was sliced off and he needed treatment from paramedics. He was taken by ambulance to a London hospital for emergency surgery to re-attach his ear.
In the incident, which occurred near Russell Square underground station, three others were also injured and sent to hospital. The claimant says he has been seriously affected by the accident, which he alleges was caused by the negligence of the bus company.
"I have been left with life-changing injuries and very bad memories," he said. "I would like answers to my questions about how this was allowed to happen."
His legal representatives say they are seeking compensation in order to cover any future medical bills and rehabilitation their client might need, as well as for the emotional and physical stress the incident has caused.
