As more and more of us choose to drive everywhere there are fewer pedestrians on the streets than there ever has been. This only means however, that drivers are less used to dealing with them and as such, pedestrian injuries are just as common as they ever have been. The government has done its best to stem the tide of pedestrian casualties by increasing the amount of speed cameras and traffic lights on UK roads but the sad fact of the matter is that many drivers still haven’t learned their lessons and the ones who end up paying the price for their ignorance is invariably the pedestrians.
Being a pedestrian in a world that appears to be moving faster by the day is not easy but it is healthy and you should not be chastised or put at risk because you have made a positive decision. Many of us would climb in our cars to pop round the corner shop for a pint of milk but studies have shown that just 30 minutes of exercise a day can have major health benefits. Unfortunately however more often than not, sloth wins out over good intentions.
Of course pedestrian injuries can often prove fatal or life changing, and if the worst does happen, surely as the victim, you and your family deserve some kind of recompense. At the Accident Advice Helpline, we specialise in personal injury claims, which means that our sole operating goal is to help those who have been injured blamelessly at the hands of a third party claim the compensations they deserve for their injuries.
