Pedestrians Involved in Road Traffic Accidents
Being involved in a road traffic accident is a horrible experience and it can cause significant trauma to the individuals involved – both psychologically and physically. Pedestrians are arguably the group most at risk from suffering serious injury as the result of a road traffic accident and so it is critical that they are always given right of way by drivers.
What kind of Accidents can I Claim for as a Pedestrian?
There are a number of reasons that you might be able to make a claim if you are involved in a road traffic accident as a pedestrian. The most common include:
Accidents on a zebra crossing
If a motorist is driving too fast or not paying due care and attention, or even under the influence of alcohol, they may not stop or notice a pedestrian using a zebra crossing.
This can result in significant injuries ranging from broken bones to nerve or tissue damage, all of which could result in potential loss of earnings or physiotherapy that could affect the enjoyment of hobbies and pastimes.
Knocked over while crossing the road
Another cause of injury that can occur as a result of a driver not paying due care and attention or driving too quickly is that a pedestrian could be knocked down while crossing the road.
Again, this can result in severe injuries and compensation for these types of accidents can be significant.
