Pedestrians can be victims too!
We do not like to think of accidents happening and neither do we like to think of people being hurt. It is a sad and almost inevitable fact of life that accidents will happen; some people will be the innocent victim of an accident, sustaining injuries that can be life-changing.
For this reason, Accident Advice Helpline, a leading law firm in the UK, is here with our expert injury solicitor Bamburgh to help you seek the compensation you could be entitled to.
Our TVs are full of real-life documentaries, with some shadowing the doctors and nurses of major accident and emergency departments. Occasionally, the documentary will show a classic ‘no fault’ accident, with an innocent person caught up in the incident, often hurt.
One recent episode showed a pedestrian who was on his way to work. He was crossing a busy road using a zebra crossing. Unfortunately for him, an oncoming driver, also going to work, was not paying the full attention needed in rush-hour traffic. Approaching the crossing at speed, he hit the pedestrian who was sent flying into the air like a rag-doll.
Fortunately, this pedestrian was not seriously injured although there were serious concerns initially regarding internal injuries.
Could you benefit from our service?
This pedestrian could certainly benefit from the services of our injury solicitor in Bamburgh and here’s why:
- The accident was not his fault – he was crossing the road using the correct crossing; he had waited for the ‘green man’ and proceeded to cross. The driver of the vehicle had not been driving with care and attention; in this instance, he was also speeding. All these were factors that directly contributed to the accident, knocking over an innocent pedestrian.
- The claim was within three years of the date of the accident – this potential claimant could use the services of our injury solicitor Bamburgh as the accident happened within the last few months but you do need to be aware that there is a 3 year deadline within which you must make a claim.
- He sought medical attention – in fact, in this case it is fair to say he had very little choice. The pedestrian was not only knocked over, he was also knocked unconscious for a short time. Concerned onlookers called emergency services and, as a result, he was whisked to the local accident and emergency department in the back of an ambulance, answering the 999 call.
