Although all road accidents can potentially lead to serious injuries, pedestrians face the greatest risk of suffering serious personal injury if they are involved in a road traffic accident. In the majority of pedestrian accident cases, a negligent or inattentive driver was to blame. In other cases, a pedestrian could be responsible for an accident by ignoring traffic light signals, or by not using the designated pavement or crossing areas.
If within the past three years you have been involved in a road accident in which another person was at least partially at fault, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim. Contact Accident Advice Helpline today for free expert advice on a potential claim.
The symptoms of pedestrian road traffic accident injuries
The symptoms of pedestrian road traffic accident injuries vary, depending on the age, gender and socio-economic status of the individual. The young, elderly and those from lower income households are most affected.
The most common symptoms of pedestrian injuries include:
- Cuts and bruises
- Road rash
- Sprains and muscle strains
- Fractures and broken bones
- More serious accidents could lead to limb loss, paralysis and even death.
