You would not expect to be injured while taking a walk along your local high street, but pedestrians get caught up in accidents that were not their fault all the time, and if they are injured badly enough to need medical attention, they are legally entitled to claim compensation. Getting in touch with Accident Advice Helpline is the best way to achieve this, and as we operate nationwide, we can help them make a personal injury claim in East Staffordshire, or anywhere else in the UK.
The pedestrian accidents that can result in a personal injury claim in East Staffordshire
Just think of yourself walking along the road minding your own business when:
- A car driver loses control and mounts the pavement, just where you happen to be
- The broken paving slab, that should have been repaired months before, trips you up and you land awkwardly
- The load the lorry is delivering to a shop, falls on top of you
- You fall down a pub cellar because the cover over the entrance was not put back properly
- For some reason, a shop window gets broken as you are walking past and flying glass hits you
All of the scenarios are the fault of someone other than the innocent victim, and in all these situations the victim would be entitled to make a personal injury claim in East Staffordshire. But they are a very few of the accidents that can happen to pedestrians, there is no end to the way accidents and injuries can occur.
From the victim’s point of view, accidents like these are unavoidable, as they were doing nothing wrong and they happen so suddenly, often too suddenly for the pedestrian to be able to move out of the way of them.
