Sadly, pedestrians are often the victims of Rhosllannerchrugog road traffic accidents, and hundreds are killed or suffer serious injuries every year. Thus, pedestrians are now classed as ‘vulnerable road users’ by the Highway Code. The list of reason pedestrians are hit is endless; some examples are:
- loss of control of the car because the driver was using a mobile phone,
- the driver was under the influence of drugs or alcohol,
- misjudgment of the speed of oncoming traffic,
- cars mounting the pavement, and
- faulty brakes.
The list of injuries that pedestrians can suffer is even longer. It stretches from mild scrapes, cuts, and bruises to fractures, brain damage, and spinal injuries. The injuries will depend on the circumstances of the accident, the speed of the vehicle, the type of vehicle, and the general age and health of the victim.
If you or a family member has been an injured pedestrian in Rhosllannerchrugog road traffic accidents or road traffic accidents anywhere, then you should make a claim for personal injuries. If the victim is not in a fit state to make a claim or deal with their affairs, for example they have sustained severe brain injuries, then a family member can make a claim on their behalf.
