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.
