As a pedestrian, you are potentially more exposed to the risk of injury than people who ride in cars or any other type of vehicle. If you are struck by a vehicle – or even a cyclist – while crossing the road, you could end up suffering one or more pedestrian injuries that could have a profound effect on you. It is certainly no surprise to learn some pedestrians have lost their lives in accidents on the roads, although it is fortunate these numbers are very low in relation to the number of people out and about today.
In some cases, pedestrians experience injuries that are caused by the pavement, or by tripping in a pothole in the road. Any kind of potential hazard could possibly cause this type of accident to happen. The vast majority of hazards of this type are dealt with promptly so as not to cause an accident, but this may not always be true.
What kinds of injuries might result from accidents like these?
Injuries could be minor, including bruises, cuts and scrapes, for example. At the opposite end of the scale there are other injuries that could potentially change your life, if you were to suffer from them. To this end, it makes sense that working out the likelihood of getting compensation is very important indeed. It is also understandable that no two claims will be the same, because they depend on a wide variety of factors.
Regardless of how you experienced your pedestrian injuries, it is a good idea to seek advice from this point of view. It will allow you to determine whether you could indeed make any sort of claim.
