Pedestrian accident claims in Kettering can be for all types of accidents, providing the victim fits the criteria, of the accident being the fault of someone else, and of sustaining injuries that needed medical attention, some time within the last three years.
If they fit these rules, then accidents claims in Kettering can be made for any type of accident at all, including:
- Motorbike accidents
- Cycling accidents
- Other road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work
- Industrial illnesses and diseases
- Slips, trips and falls
- Holiday accidents
- Accidents in schools
- Food poisoning
In fact, any type of accident can be claimed for, if it fits the criteria yet only 3 out of 10 victims make a claim, for all sorts of various reasons. They struggle on with the injuries they have sustained, paying the extra expenses themselves, when really the person that put them in that situation should be paying for it.
In reality, some form of insurance covers most claims and very few guilty parties have to pay the compensation out of their own pocket.
The injuries that pedestrian accident claims in Kettering are made for
There is an endless list of injuries that pedestrian accident claims in Kettering are made for, but just a few examples are:
- Back and spine injuries

- Facial injuries
- Internal injuries
- Head and brain injuries

The severity of your injury and the recovery time will be taken into account when your personal injury claim is being made, as will the impact it has had on your life and costs and losses that have arisen because of the accident.
The impact on your life
Some injuries can change your life forever and the lives of your family and loved ones. If you suffer severe brain injuries, for instance, if you survive them, you could be a totally different person and possibly need 24-hour care. But the injury does not have to be that serious. Many victims suffer post-traumatic stress disorder, which can turn a lively, vibrant person into someone very morose and depressed.
Facial injuries that leave a scar can cause a victim much embarrassment, and mean they also become hermit-like, and losing a limb can have devastating effects as well.
