Have you been injured whilst crossing the road?
Even though there are plenty of pedestrian crossings situated on busy roads, motorists don’t always give way to pedestrians when they should. If a driver fails to stop at a zebra crossing, for example, a nasty collision could occur.
Unfortunately, pedestrians can often suffer very serious harm when struck by a car and these types of accidents can sometimes result in fatalities. Whilst people can sometimes walk away from these types of incidents, it’s always advisable to seek medical help as you may not realise that you’ve sustained potentially serious injuries.
Making a claim with an injury lawyer in Stanton by Dale
If you’ve suffered harm because you were struck by a vehicle, you may want to consider taking legal action with an injury lawyer in Stanton by Dale. If you were using a designated crossing, for example, and had the right of way, it should be fairly easy to show that you weren’t responsible for the incident.
As many areas are now covered by CCTV cameras, your injury lawyer in Stanton by Dale may even be able to help you access video footage of the incident and this could help to confirm that you weren’t at fault.
Once you can show that your injuries were caused by someone else and you obtained medical treatment following the incident, you should have a good chance of being able to obtain injury compensation.
Of course, you may be facing a long recovery process and you may not want to make your injury claim immediately. Whilst this is understandable, you will need to consider the relevant deadlines or you could risk missing out on the compensation you deserve.
For example, claimants are only normally given 3 years’ in which to take legal action after an accident. If you wait too long, it’s likely that your claim would be disallowed and you’d miss out on your chance to take legal action.
Fortunately, making a compensation claim is relatively easy so you needn’t worry about any additional stress or hassle caused by taking action after an accident.
