    Injuries you could sustain as a pedestrian


    When you’re walking to work, shopping in town or just crossing the street, the last thing on your mind is being involved in an accident. Yet accidents can and do happen every day, leaving pedestrians with injuries ranging from minor to life threatening. If you’ve been injured and forced to take time off work to recover, you could find yourself struggling to pay household bills or medical expenses – even a few days off work could impact your finances. Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim the compensation you deserve if you’ve been injured and somebody else is to blame. If you’re wondering what sort of injuries you could sustain as a pedestrian, keep reading.

    How have you been injured?

    There are a number of different types of injuries you could sustain as a pedestrian – here are a few examples of the types of accidents which could happen:

    • Hit by a speeding car whilst crossing the road
    • Slip, trip or fall on a damaged pavement or kerb
    • Hit by a motorbike or bicycle
    • Struck by a reversing vehicle
    • Falling down an open manhole or hole (for example whilst roadworks are taking place)
    • Injured by a gas explosion
    • Slipping on an icy pavement
    • Struck by objects falling from height – for example from a roof or scaffolding

    You may be lucky enough to escape with cuts and bruises, but it’s not uncommon for pedestrians to suffer more serious injuries, such as head injuries, concussion, broken bones, crush injuries or even brain injuries. If you’ve been hospitalised after your accident, it may be months before you can return to work – you may even need ongoing care and treatment in the future, which all costs money. Provided it has been three years or less since your accident, you could make a 100% no win, no fee claim with Accident Advice Helpline, to get the personal injury compensation you deserve.
