Need the expert assistance of Accident Advice Helpline?
Maesteg is a town lying to the far south of Wales. It is part of the county borough of Bridgend, and is home to roughly 20,000 people. While some residents work in local shops and other businesses, others seek work outside the area in some of the larger towns and nearby cities. That journey to work has on rare occasions led to personal injury claims in Maesteg.
Pedestrians are among those who have the least protection in terms of road accidents. Cyclists can also be at risk of more serious injuries, although they at least could be wearing helmets. In the case of pedestrians though, an accident caused by a driver could leave the pedestrian in need of medical care.
Minor or serious injuries
The speed a vehicle is travelling at can make a big difference when it comes to the outcome of a road accident in which a pedestrian is struck and injured. The speed makes a major difference purely because a high-speed crash is far more likely to incur serious injuries for the pedestrian.
This is true no matter where in the country the accident happens. While anyone crossing the road should use a proper crossing to help them cross safely, if a driver is speeding or not paying attention, there’s still the potential for someone to be injured.
Do you have a right to make personal injury claims in Maesteg?
This could be a possibility if you were hurt and you did nothing to cause the accident. Lawyers do need to prove a third party was the cause though, which is why all the facts need to be taken into account when assessing personal injury claims in Maesteg and other areas. This is part of the process.
Do call Accident Advice Helpline today if you think there is even a slim chance you could claim. Perhaps you are entitled to compensation for something that happened to you while walking to work or going anywhere else for that matter. As a pedestrian, you are naturally more vulnerable. If someone drove or rode in a manner that was dangerous and they hit you and hurt you, it’s worth calling the Accident Advice Helpline team.
