Most of us cross roads on a daily basis – but rarely stop to think about our own personal safety when doing so. Yet every year, hundreds of people are injured or killed whilst crossing roads in the UK. If you’ve been injured through somebody else’s negligence, you could make a claim for personal injury compensation with Accident Advice Helpline. There’s a three-year time limit to make a claim, so it’s a good idea to contact us as soon as possible after your accident, to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
How have you been injured?
Injuries you could sustain crossing the road can range from minor injuries, such as cuts, bruises or a sprained ankle, to more serious injuries including:
- Broken bones, including complex and compound fractures
- Head injuries
- Crush injuries
- Facial injuries such as a fractured cheekbone
You could be hit by a cyclist, motorbike, car, van or lorry whilst crossing the road – or even a bus. But you could even injured yourself by tripping on a damaged road surface and hitting your head on the road, or you could fall down an open manhole – for example if roadworks are taking place. In all these scenarios, it’s possible that somebody else is at fault for your accident, whether that’s the council, the driver who struck you or somebody else. If you’ve been hurt due to somebody else’s negligence, claiming personal injury compensation is an option that’s open to you. Our lawyers work on a 100% no win, no fee* basis, so anybody can afford to make a claim. And we’ve got over 15 years’ experience helping our customers to claim compensation, so you know you can trust us.
How much compensation could you receive?
It’s easy to get excited over the idea of a substantial personal injury settlement, but the truth is, the amount of compensation you’ll receive depends on a number of things, including the severity of your injuries, how they have impacted your life and any loss of earnings you have suffered.
