    Compensation for pedestrian-lorry accidents


    Compensation for pedestrian-lorry accidents

    The outcome of pedestrian-lorry accidents is rarely pretty. With lorries weighing many tonnes, crush injuries are unfortunately all too common in pedestrian-lorry accidents, and if you or someone you love has been struck by a lorry, you might be wondering who is to blame. Driver error accounts for 90% of all road traffic accidents, such as:

    • Using mobile phone at the wheel
    • Failing to pay attention to road signs and signals
    • Speeding
    • Driving too fast in poor weather conditions
    • Distracted by passengers
    • Driving without a licence

    If you have been injured by a dangerous driver, you may find you need to take time off work for medical treatment and to recover from your injuries. As well as being in pain, this means you could suffer financially – how are you going to pay your mortgage and household bills? We’re here to help you claim compensation if you have been injured in an accident that was somebody else’s fault. Our team of personal injury advisors will be able to tell you whether you have a viable claim and are on hand to offer confidential, no-obligation advice.

    How have you been injured?

    Injuries sustained in pedestrian-lorry accidents are often severe; chances are you may have been seriously injured. Here are a few examples of the types of injuries you may have suffered:

    • Broken bones
    • Broken ribs
    • Punctured lung(s)
    • Other crush injuries
    • Head injuries including brain damage
    • Spinal fracture
    • Facial injuries
