A percentage of these accidents will be road traffic accidents in West Lancashire and there will be injured parties who were injured through no fault of their own.
Road collision accidents in West Lancashire can vary in severity as well as type.

I was injured while crossing the road
As a pedestrian you are responsible for knowing where to cross and when. You are also tasked with ensuring that drivers on the road can see you if you are crossing the road at night or in conditions where visibility is reduced.
Just as you are responsible for ensuring drivers can see you, so too they are responsible for ensuring you see them. This means that a driver pulling out into the road, or turning at a junction, should indicate and use proper signals.
Both pedestrians and drivers alike are responsible for how they behave on the roads. As the victim of an accident as a driver, or a pedestrian, you could be injured if another party behaves in a reckless manner in a vehicle or crossing the road on foot.
Every year in Britain, thousands of road traffic accidents could be avoided, if only more care and attention was paid. These accidents are not just caused by those behind the wheel of a motor vehicle, but also those walking on foot. There are a number of accidents annually, where a pedestrian has been hit by a passing motor vehicle at a pelican crossing or set of traffic lights.
