    Northumberland Road Traffic Accidents

    Knocked Over by a Passing Motorist? Stand Up for your Legal Right to Claim Compensation!

    Pedestrians are some of the most vulnerable people who use our roads everyday. Despite designated places for pedestrians to cross the roads safely, many are involved in collisions with motorists who may fail to see them or do not allow adequate time for them to cross safely.

    If you, or someone close to you, has been injured in a Northumberland road traffic accident as a pedestrian through no fault of your own, then you may be eligible to claim personal injury compensation for your pedestrian related injury.

    Causes of Pedestrian Related Accidents

    Pedestrians may become injured in Northumberland road traffic accidents through no fault of their own.  They may literally be knocked off their feet by the impact of a collision with a motorist and they may sustain devastating and life changing injuries as a result.

    Accidents involving pedestrians may be caused by many factors including:

    1. Poor or lack of visibility
    2. Poor weather conditions
    3. Failing to check mirrors when turning left at junctions
    4. Driving dangerously
    5. Driving whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs
    6. Driving at excessive speeds
    7. Failing to notify other road users of your intentions 
    8. Pedestrians not wearing reflective clothing
    9. Pedestrians entering the carriageway in the path of approaching vehicles
    10. Failing to stop when requested by road signs, road markings and road signals e.g. pelican controlled crossings
