Pedestrian accidents in Driffield and the rest of the UK involving cyclists number one a day and that number increases as the number of cyclists increases.
If you were involved in pedestrian accidents in Driffield and it wasn’t your fault, you might have sustained injuries that took time to recover from and which might have hit you hard financially. Luckily, government legislation entitles you to make a claim for compensation.
You could be compensated for any physical or emotional pain and suffering you experienced, lack of enjoyment if you were prevented from taking part in social activities and hobbies and lack of consortium if your relationship with your partner or spouse was affected.
Recover your costs
Compensation could help you to recover some or all of the costs you’ve incurred as a result of your accident. That could include loss of earnings if you had to take time off work to recover and were on a reduced salary or statutory sick pay.
It could also include medical bills, travel costs to and from hospital or GP appointments, prescription charges and, if your injuries were serious, the cost of personal care or help around the home.
