Did you know that heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) could weigh up to 44 tonnes? With that information in mind, it’s easy to see why injuries sustained in HGV-pedestrian accidents can be so serious. With 44 tonnes of vehicle bearing down on you in the event of an accident, you could suffer serious crush injuries that could leave you in a coma, permanently disabled and fighting for your life. Even if you have been lucky enough to escape with bruises, cuts and broken bones, you may still experience ongoing pain as well as financial difficulties caused by loss of earnings from your time off work. HGV-pedestrian accidents can have serious consequences, and we’re here to help you claim compensation if you have been injured in this type of accident.
Whether you have been seriously injured or not, you can contact our team of professional personal injury advisors to find out whether you’re eligible to make a claim for personal injury compensation – or take the 30-second test on our website right now, and see how much compensation you could receive. Being trapped under an HGV after an accident can be psychologically damaging as well as causing you physical injuries, so don’t underestimate how much an accident like this could impact your life.
