Compensation solicitors in South Shields


Road accidents can occur in a number of ways and due to a number of different causes. If you are injured in a road accident which is not your fault, you should be able to use compensation solicitors in South Shields to make a road accident claim against whoever it was that caused the accident. If you believe that a pedestrian caused your accident then there is nothing to say that you are not able to make a claim against them, even if you were in a car and they are badly injured because of the accident. Here are some of the ways in which a pedestrian can cause your accident.

Walking out into the road

A pedestrian can cause a serious accident by walking out into the road without looking, and thus getting in front of your vehicle when you didn’t realise they were there. Even if they are badly injured because of the accident which occurs because of this, you should still be able to make a claim for compensation as the accident was their fault.

Walking in an area where pedestrians are not allowed to go

There are certain roads, bridges and so on which prohibit pedestrian use. If a pedestrian is on one of these roads then the cars trying to navigate it may struggle to stay on course, with their drivers distracted by trying not to injure the pedestrian. Any pedestrian who is in a place where they should not be can be considered to be at fault for any accidents which occur because of it. Motorways are a typical example of roads that pedestrians should stay away from.

Walking on the street whilst intoxicated

A pedestrian who is too drunk to take care of themselves on the roads is likely to cause accidents, as drivers try to steer clear of them. It should be fairly easy to make a claim for an accident which has happened because of this.
