Have you been hurt while running?
With the warmer weather arriving, many fitness enthusiasts are dusting off the trainers and heading for the outdoors.
Runners may find themselves taking routes around main roads and lots of traffic, especially when out in densely populated cities. If you are a keen runner, this shouldn’t put you off, but it does mean that you need to pay extra attention to vehicles that may not be looking out for you. If you are running in the dark, make sure you have high visibility clothing on in order to be seen. During the day time, sticking to the pavement and removing headphones when running near lots of traffic can reduce the chances of an accident.
Although you may take these and other steps to prevent an injury, you could still become hurt when running if a driver is irresponsible. If the person driving the vehicle has struck you and caused you physical injury, they should be held to account for the damage they have done. Accident Advice Helpline can assist with these sorts of car accident compensation claims in Solihull, so get in touch with us straight away.
