Hundreds of pedestrians are injured on the UK’s roads every year, and if you think there is no chance of you ever being one of them, you could be wrong. Whilst you can take steps to be as safe as you can when crossing the road or standing waiting to cross the street, all it takes is one negligent driver and you could be left seriously injured. If you’re a victim of a road traffic accident in Scotland, then finding out more about personal injury claims in Alloa is something you should consider. Accident Advice Helpline can help anybody who has been injured to make a no-win, no-fee* claim within three years of their accident.
Injuries after being hit by a car
Whether you’ve been hit by a car, bus or another vehicle whilst crossing the road, you may have sustained life-changing injuries, or maybe you’ve been lucky enough to escape with minor injuries. One mistake many people make is assuming that you can only make personal injury claims in Alloa for severe injuries; it’s simply not true.

- Loss of limbs
- Facial injuries such as eye injuries or a fractured cheekbone
- Crush injuries such as cracked ribs or a punctured lung

If you’re a pedestrian who has been hit by a car, you should definitely consider making a personal injury claim. It could be that you’re eligible to receive a substantial settlement for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
