Do you need to make pedestrian accident claims in Wiltshire after being hurt at a pedestrian crossing?
In order to try and make the roads safer for pedestrians, councils up and down the United Kingdom have introduced extra safety measures, such as zebra crossings and pedestrians crossings. By enabling pedestrians to cross busy roads safely, it is hoped that it will cut down on road traffic accidents and that fewer people will be hurt on the roads.
Of course, these measures will only be effective if drivers pay attention to them. If drivers attempt to speed through amber traffic lights or fail to stop at zebra crossings, the rate of injuries could actually increase as pedestrians will assume they have the right of way and step out on to the road.
If you’ve been hurt whilst using a pedestrian or zebra crossing and you don’t believe that you were at fault, you may wish to make pedestrian accident claims in Wiltshire against the driver responsible for your injuries. Providing you can prove that they caused your injuries, it’s likely that your pedestrian accident claims in Wiltshire will be successful.
Unfortunately, not everyone who is eligible to make pedestrian accident claims in Wiltshire goes on to do so. Often, misconceptions about the claims process can put people off and they can miss out on their chance to make a claim altogether. For example, some potential claimants assume that they will have to pay expensive legal fees in order to gain advice or to make a claim. If they can’t afford to do so, they may feel that they can’t access justice by making pedestrian accident claims in Wiltshire.
Although some personal injury law firms do charge expensive upfront fees, this isn’t the only way to make a claim. You could make your claim on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis which means that you wouldn’t have to pay anything upfront at all.
