Pembroke is a town in Pembrokeshire, and it actually used to be the county town in this particular part of Wales. While the town is home to just over 7,500 people today, and is dotted with many modern sights, the past is here to be seen as well. One of the significant sights is the castle that was erected in mediaeval times. Since then, many roads have spread out and been laid in the surrounding area, and the occasional Pembroke accident has occurred on them.
The main street of any town is likely to be busy throughout the day. While some places have pedestrianised their main streets, others still allow traffic. Pembroke is one of them, although no parking is allowed anywhere nearby for obvious safety reasons.
Taking care when crossing the road
Every day, some pedestrians find themselves in hospital because they have been hit by a car, a cyclist or a motorbike. Thankfully, some injuries tend to be very minor, but that doesn’t mean they are not painful at the time. Some people might find themselves limited in what they can do for a while afterwards, as they get back to normal again.
In other cases, pedestrians have been more seriously injured. This may happen if a pedestrian steps out into the road without looking. However, it may also potentially occur if they do everything they can to cross the road safely, only to be struck by a vehicle driven by someone who is not paying attention, or is driving faster than the speed limit allows for.
Injuries can be life changing
They can indeed, but regardless of the nature of the injuries you’ve incurred in a situation like this, you may wonder whether your Pembroke accident warrants any compensation to be paid to you.
