    Compensation for being hit by a car at night


    Night time is statistically a more risky time to be a pedestrian or cyclists, with more accidents happening at night than during the day. Whilst to some degree you have a responsibility for your own safety if walking or cycling on a main road, other road users must still drive carefully and observe speed limits. If you have been hit by a car at night and believe that the driver was to blame for your accident, you may be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation.

    Injuries sustained after being hit by a car at night could range from minor injuries, such as cuts and bruises, to serious head injuries and even fatalities. Because it’s dark when accidents occur at night, if the driver fails to stop, the victim is more at risk of further injury from oncoming traffic. However you have been injured in a collision, if someone else is to blame, you should consider contacting a personal injury lawyer for advice and assistance.

    Don’t miss out – there’s a time limit

    Many people leave claiming until the last minute, not realising that there is a three-year time limit in place which covers most personal injury claims. At any rate, it’s best to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident, rather than waiting until close to the deadline to do so. This way they can tell you straight away whether or not you have a viable claim, and begin gathering evidence in support of your claim. The sooner you know, the sooner you can begin to move on with your life, however you have been injured.
