Do you need to make a no win no fee East Kilbride compensation claim after being knocked down on a zebra crossing?
Designed to give pedestrians the right of way and enable them to cross the road safely, zebra crossings are commonly used in cities, towns and villages across the country. The distinctive black and white road markings, along with yellow lights, alert drivers to the presence of a crossing. If you are a driver and you’re approaching a zebra crossing, you must stop and allow pedestrians to pass if they are waiting to do so. If you fail to do so, you will be committing a traffic violation and, potentially, a criminal offence.
Unfortunately, if drivers don’t stop at a zebra crossing, there is a high chance that someone will get hurt as a result. As pedestrians will assume that they have got the right of way, they may begin to cross the road without realising that the driver isn’t going to stop. If they are hit by the vehicle, they could sustain very serious injuries and they could even be killed.
If you have hit someone on a zebra crossing, it’s likely that the incident will be investigated by the police. Whilst it may have been a genuine accident, they will want to find out why you didn’t stop and check whether you were driving under the influence of any alcohol or substances.
In addition to facing questioning by the police, drivers could also face no win no fee East Kilbride compensation claims. If you have been hit by a vehicle whilst crossing the road and the driver was at fault, it’s likely that you will be able to obtain compensation by making a no win no fee East Kilbride claim.
