If you are asking yourself the question ‘I was injured walking down a motorway, can I claim?’ you need to understand that this is a very difficult question to answer. A great deal will depend upon why you were there and the circumstances of the accident. If you have simply taken it upon yourself to walk along a motorway then you could find that you are not able to claim as you should not have been there.
However, you may be in a position to make a claim if your car had broken down and you had to walk along the motorway’s hard shoulder to one of the emergency phones. You could also be able to claim if you are part of a work gang on the motorway. Naturally, this will involve you walking along the motorway at some point and if you are injured during the course of your work you may be in a position to make a personal injury claim.
How can I make a claim?
To make a claim for an injury you suffered when walking down a motorway, you need to get the right people on your side. An experienced law firm with a strong track record of personal injury cases is exactly what you need and this is why you should call Accident Advice Helpline.

What will happen?
Hopefully there will be two things that happen as a result of your case. The first will be that you could get financial compensation. This will help to cover all those expenses that reared their head unexpectedly as well as any loss of earnings that you have suffered if you have had to take time away from work. There is no reason for you to be out of pocket as a result of your accident and we can help you to get any compensation that you are entitled to.
The second thing that Accident Advice Helpline hopes will happen is that measures will be taken to prevent the same thing from happening to another person. For example, if you were working as part of a motorway gang when the accident happened we hope that your managers will put more safety measures in place such as better traffic management and PPE to keep other workers safer.
Accidents on a motorway can be very serious when you consider the speed that everybody drives at. If you have been injured then it could be that you will need a long time to recover – let us make that whole process easier.
