Being struck by a vehicle can be a complete shock. One second you’re crossing the road, the next, you’re lying in hospital with a broken leg and head injuries. Pedestrians struck by cars and other vehicles often sustain serious injuries due to the size and weight of the vehicle which hits them, not to mention the speed it was travelling at.
But hospitalised pedestrians can fight back if their accident was caused by a negligent, dangerous driver. You could make a claim for personal injury compensation, and Accident Advice Helpline is here to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
Hospitalised pedestrians could find themselves suffering, in pain and unable to return to work until they have made a full recovery. Serious injuries such as head injuries could impact the rest of your life, affecting your behaviour and mood. It may even be impossible for you to return to work and the life you once knew.
Get in touch with us if you need confidential, no-obligation advice relating to your accident – we’ll tell you whether you have a viable claim, and you can even take the 30-second test on our website, to find out how much you could receive.
If you or someone you love has suffered life-changing injuries after being struck by a car or other vehicle, we suggest you get in touch with a personal injury lawyer within three years of your accident – that’s the time limit to make a personal injury claim. Life-changing injuries could include:
- Spinal injuries
- Loss of a limb
- Head injuries
- Tendon or muscle injuries which don’t heal properly
- Complex fractures which affect your mobility
Any of these injuries have the potential to affect your quality of life in future. You may need ongoing care and treatment to recover, and in some cases, 24/7 care may be needed for the rest of your life.
