Have you been hit by a car or vehicle?
When a pedestrian is struck by a car or a vehicle, they can be left with catastrophic or very serious injuries and in some cases, these types of incidents may even be fatal. Unfortunately, this type of collision can happen for a variety of reasons.
In some instances, the pedestrian may step out on to the road without seeing the vehicle and it could be too late for the driver to stop. Alternatively, the driver may not be aware of a pedestrian on a crossing. In some cases, the driver may even mount the pavement and hit someone because they have been hit by another vehicle or because they are trying to avoid hitting someone or something else.
If you’re hurt in this type of incident, it’s likely that you will need emergency medical help. Luckily, ambulances can be dispatched very quickly so you should be able to receive some medical treatment within minutes of the incident occurring.
However, even if you do receive treatment quickly, your injuries could mean that you require surgery or that you will need weeks or months to recover.
