Alderley Edge is located in Cheshire, and is a village with around 4,500 residents. While it is a small village, it is only a few miles away from Macclesfield and only a little further from the city of Manchester. It is an area known for its expensive houses, and many well-known people live in this area. If you live there, or you are just passing through, you wouldn’t expect to have any thought of finding injury solicitors in Alderley Edge, that’s for certain.
Although Alderley Edge is a safe place to be, you never know who might be on the roads. Some people always seem to be in a hurry, and some will jump the traffic lights in the hope of shaving a few seconds off their journey. Unfortunately, some will subsequently injure pedestrians who are trying to cross the road when the lights are in their favour. This could have devastating consequences all round.
Jumping the lights
It’s tempting to do, but in reality, the driver could end up hitting someone who is crossing the road when the lights are telling them they can do so. If a driver does this, and they hit a pedestrian, they could potentially cause very serious injuries. A lot will depend on the speed they are going, but in any event, the pedestrian is unlikely to get away unscathed.
As a pedestrian, you may already have been unlucky enough to be on the receiving end of injuries caused in an accident like this. Sometimes the driver will stop and the police and an ambulance will be called.
Have you been hit on the roads?
This is an experience no one wants to have. You don’t just have to worry about the injuries though – you have to think about how your life might be affected from this moment on. Will you recover fully? Will your injuries mean you can no longer be sure of returning to the job you had before?
