When most people think about a road accident in Southampton, it be likely that incidents involving two or multiple vehicles will come to mind. However, it can often occur that pedestrians are either injured while passing by an accident involving vehicles or some other type of road-related incident.
Unfortunately, as you might expect, a pedestrian will stand a greater chance of suffering a nasty injury than a person sat behind the wheel of a car. It would typically never be likely that a person hit by a car would come off with less severe injuries than that person driving the car in an accident of this nature.
If you are unfortunate enough to get embroiled in a road accident in Southampton that was not your fault while minding your own business walking about the place, there will be a possibility that you might just be able to take personal injury action against the person or organisation that was responsible for what happened to you with the aid of a competent personal injury solicitor.
Pedestrians and a road accident in Southampton
Maybe you were injured by flying debris caused by a road accident in Southampton that you had the misfortune to be walking past. Perchance you were knocked to the ground after a motorist mounted the pavement. Perhaps you were done a mischief after a collision with a cyclist. Your might even have been struck by a car driver opening his vehicle’s door without having checked who or what was coming along the pavement.
In these circumstances, and a range of others very similar in nature to them, you might be able to land a large compensation pay-out if your first-rate 100% no win no fee solicitor could successfully argue that you were hurt as a consequence of a third party’s negligent, irresponsible or reckless behaviour.
The amount you could stand to win if your personal injury lawyer were to successfully argue your case will be very much dependent on the severity of your injuries and the precise circumstances surrounding your accident. You can get a rough idea of the sort of figure you could be looking at by making use of the 30 second claims calculator that sits on the right-hand side of this very web page.
