The City of London is one of the busiest places in the world, and there are many potentially dangerous situations that occur there on a day to day basis. One of these might be the dangers that affect people who are pedestrians, since there is so much commotion in the region, that people might not notice a pedestrian as they’re walking around the city. So it is no surprise that there are so many City of London accident claims.
The risks when visiting the City of London
An example of this might be a person who is driving a car, and is seen to be in a rush. They might be driving so fast that they’re not paying attention to the rules of the road properly, and they’re not prepared to stop for people who might be at a zebra crossing for example. This might produce a situation where there is an accident involving a pedestrian.
However, a pedestrian can also be involved in an accident where a cyclist was to blame. A person might have chosen to ride their bike on the pavements, even though they were supposed to ride their bike on a designated biking track. This cycle route might have prevented the cyclist from encountering pedestrians, and hence causing a possible collision.
In addition to this however, pedestrian accidents in the City of London can also be caused by someone who was walking and struck down by another pedestrian…
Something that might sound odd at first, a pedestrian can be involved in an accident if there was another pedestrian for example, walking with headphones in, or whilst using their phone, that did not notice you in the way. This might have produced a situation where an accident took place, and you were injured as a result.
It is clear therefore, that pedestrians can be involved in a number of accidents caused by people other than themselves. These accidents might happen because of a car, or even another pedestrian.
Making City of London accident claims
Nonetheless, when an accident happens because of someone else, a pedestrian is entitled to seek out compensation and make an accident claim. Making a personal injury claim is a possible way to have some money made available to you, that will allow for you to pay some of your bills, should you be unable to work for a period of time.
