If you have been knocked down while on a pedestrian crossing, you may have broken bones or head injuries; if this is the case and the accident was not your fault you should find out about claiming for pedestrian accidents in Colchester. Obviously, you should get your injuries tended to by a medical professional immediately; even if you think that you are just shook up.
Make a note of the date, time and which surgery or hospital you visited. You will need this evidence to make a compensation claim for your injuries. If you have to pay for your treatment, get a receipt and keep it somewhere safe because you will probably be able to claim for that as well. Also keep a note of any wages you may have lost because of time from work regarding your injuries. All of these expenses quickly add up.
On top of that, if you have psychological injuries such as a fear of crossing the road or even going near a moving car, you may be able to claim compensation for that. Compensation does not just cover physical injuries.
