Bus accident which wasn't my fault

Hi all,

I am new to this forum and apologise if this is the wrong section to post this.

I live in London and was involved in an accident yesterday. As I was leaving the bus, a man ran to get on the bus and collided into me, giving me an ankle injury. I didn't know if it was broken or just sprained, but figured it may have been broken as I almost fainted moments after. Do I have any rights to receive compensation i.e. from the man?

Thanks.

Hi, if you were both on the bus at the time of the impact then it would depend if the bus was stationary or moving as well as if there was any element of fault from the bus driver. There may be recourse as to assault but this has no intention so this may be difficult to claim compensation,
