If you’ve been involved and injured in a North Hertfordshire car accident because a pedestrian stepped into the road without looking, you could very well be entitled to raise a claim for compensation.
Danger from pedestrians not looking before stepping into the road
A pedestrian walking out into the road without thinking or looking, and as a result, causing a car accident, is far more prevalent than you may think. In actual fact it accounts for approximately 10.2% of all car accidents. Despite all of those years of training as a child, and the green cross code etc; it only takes one moment of carelessness or distraction and disaster happens.
Danger to the pedestrian, other road users, and innocent bystanders
If the pedestrian steps out immediately in front of an oncoming vehicle, the injury is normally to the pedestrian and can cause serious injury and death. If the pedestrian walks out, giving an oncoming motorist a few metres in which to react, the driver may try to swerve to avoid hitting the pedestrian, and in the process may drive into other stationery parked vehicle or into the side of a building or wall, or into an oncoming vehicle. The resultant car crash can cause injury to occupants of all vehicles involved, and possibly to other innocent passers-by.
