    Personal injury claims in Isle of Wight

    Safety as a pedestrian and when to make personal injury claims

    Many people associate danger on the roads with being the driver or passenger of a car, but it can be just as dangerous to be a pedestrian on the road if you are not being careful. You need to know how to be as safe as you can when walking as well as driving, so that you can be aware of potential dangers and avoid them. As a pedestrian, you are actually more vulnerable to some things than people in vehicles will be and these are the things you should be looking out for and striving to avoid.

    • Cross at a crossing. Although it may seem like a lot of effort to go and find a crossing when you can see a gap in traffic right in front of you, you cannot be sure of what is behind the cars you can see around you, or what might be about to come round a corner. This way if you are hit by a car it is your fault entirely.
    • Walk in groups. If you can try to always walk with at least one other person, particularly at night, then you can be safer than if you are on your own. Attackers and thieves are less likely to approach you if you are in a group, and you can watch out for each other as well.
    • Stick to the middle of the pavement. The middle of the pavement is a place where you can be seen, so are less vulnerable to attack, but where you are not so close to the road and traffic that you risk being pulled in.
    • Watch out for reckless drivers. Even if you are at a crossing and have the right of way, don’t just walk out in front of traffic and expect cars to stop. Watch out for potentially reckless drivers so you can make a judgement call.
