Are you claiming compensation in Southwark?
If you’re hoping to go about claiming compensation in Southwark, it’s likely that you or a family member have been hurt or have suffered an injury whilst in the local area. Although injuries and accidents can occur in any number of ways, the high population and traffic in the area can mean that people are at high risk of suffering a road traffic accident.
If you don’t drive, or you prefer not to drive, you may feel that you’re exempt from suffering this sort of accident or that you are less likely to be hurt in this way. Unfortunately, even people using public transport can be injured in collisions or road traffic accidents and you could even be hurt in this way whilst walking along a local road or street.
When pedestrians are struck by a moving vehicle, it can result in very serious injuries and even fatalities. As pedestrians don’t have any protection from the impact, they can take the full force of the vehicle which can, obviously, cause very severe injuries.
In most cases, when a pedestrian is struck by a vehicle, it won’t be the pedestrian who is at fault. Even if the driver has swerved to try and avoid another vehicle and struck you accidentally, they could still be held responsible for the incident.
If you’ve been hurt whilst out walking, you may be able to make a claim for compensation in Southwark against those responsible. As most heavily populated areas are covered by CCTV, the incident may have even been caught on tape which could help to support your claiming compensation in Southwark at a later date.
