    Compensation for being injured by a reversing car


    Reversing drivers often are unable to see portions of the road behind them, and if they fail to check their mirrors before they start reversing, or whilst their vehicle is moving, they could hit pedestrians or cyclists – or other vehicles. If you’ve been injured by a reversing car, it’s all too easy to blame yourself for the accident. However, if you looked before crossing the road and then were struck by a reversing vehicle, through no fault of your own, you could claim personal injury compensation.

    Since 2000, Accident Advice Helpline has helped people claim compensation for road traffic collisions, from pedestrians and cyclists to drivers. So if you’ve been injured by a reversing car, why not get in touch with us to find out if you’re eligible to make a claim? Or you could take the 30-second test on our website, for an idea of how much compensation you could be entitled to.

    Injuries sustained after a road accident

    Pedestrians struck by reversing vehicles could sustain serious injuries, such as:

    • Broken bones
    • Crush injuries, such as a punctured lung
    • Facial injuries
    • Head injuries including concussion or brain injury
    • Loss of limb
    • Whiplash or other neck and shoulder injuries

    To some extent, the injuries sustained will depend on the size and weight of the vehicle you have been hit by – if you’re struck by a tractor or heavy goods vehicle, your injuries will be more severe than if you are hit by a smaller car. When you claim compensation with us, we’ll take into account the severity of your injuries, as well as how they have impacted your life. So if you’ve taken 6 months off work to recover and are struggling to pay your mortgage and household bills, we’ll consider this when working out your personal injury settlement.

    Simple and stress-free

    The last thing you need after your accident is more stress, but our personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so even if you are in financial trouble after your accident, you can afford our services. If somebody else has caused your injuries – in this case a careless driver – you deserve the chance to claim compensation for your pain, suffering and financial losses. You can trust Accident Advice Helpline – we specialise in personal injury claims and have years of industry experience, as well as a recommendation from our patron, TV personality Esther Rantzen. Why not pick up the phone and call our freephone 24/7 helpline today on 0800 689 0500 to find out more about what’s involved in making a claim?
