    Road accident in Sussex

    Being safe as a pedestrian

    If you want to avoid being part of a road accident in Sussex as a pedestrian then you need to always be vigilant on the roads. A road accident in Sussex doesn’t always mean two cars crashing into one another, but can also mean a vehicle hitting a pedestrian. This happens more often than people may think and just because you know the roads and are fairly streetwise doesn’t mean you won’t be caught up in a road accident in Sussex.

    Stay on the pavement

    On some roads, it can be difficult to stay on the pavement all of the time, as there may be obstacles or it may just be quicker to drift into the road from time to time. Try to stay on the pavement at all times and if there isn’t pavement to walk on then cross to the other side of the street, or take another route. If a car hits you and you are not on a designated walkway then you may actually be at fault

    Cross at a crossing

    A lot of people try to cross the road outside of crossings because there isn’t always a crossing exactly where you want to cross the road. It is always worth spending a little extra time looking for a crossing and following the lights to ensure that you stay safe. A car could be speeding around a corner and knock you down if you are not at a crossing which would stop them well in time.

    Be visible

    Wear bright clothing at night and stay in sight of drivers by not standing behind parked cars or vans and staying out of a driver’s blind spot. Assume a car cannot see you when you are crossing the road, and do what you can to be as visible as possible.

    Compensation after a road accident in Sussex

    If you have been involved in any way in a road accident in Sussex which was not your fault, and you have sustained injuries because of it, then you may be able to make a claim for compensation against the person at fault.
