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
- 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.
