Accident Advice Helpline in Middlesex – working for you
If you are a pedestrian who has been hurt in a road accident that was not your own fault, but the fault of somebody else, then you need to speak to the Accident Advice Helpline in Middlesex.
Pedestrians are the most vulnerable road users. Simply by walking in the vicinity of motor vehicles can be hazardous and dangerous especially if drivers and other road users are acting carelessly or incorrectly.
Drivers often cannot see pedestrians as they can be blocked by blind spots in their vehicles or hidden from their rear view mirrors. Pedestrian injuries are often the most serious road accident injuries because there is no bodily protection from the impact. Even bicycle collisions can lead to significant injuries and lead to substantial pedestrian injury compensation.
In order to gain compensation for this type of accident, your injuries must have been a result of situations in which the injured party (you, the pedestrian) was not at fault.
So in this case that could mean being knocked down on a crossing, being hit by vehicles mounting the pavement or by vehicles reversing without due care and attention.
If you are a pedestrian and you are injured in an accident then you need to collect as many details as you can about the accident. Try and get names, contact information and insurance details for anyone else involved, and importantly for any witnesses who saw the accident. If there are any pictures worth taking, of any damage, specific road conditions, or even skid marks, then always try and photograph those, and return to the scene if you need to.
Of course the most important thing of all is to make sure that you get proper medical attention. Even if you feel fine, and even if it doesn’t look as though there’s anything wrong, it’s essential that you see a doctor, particularly if you’ve suffered a bang or blow to the head.
