Accidents on the road don’t always involve two cars. There are occasions where other parties involved. On some occasions they are pedestrians. Just because there is not a second vehicle it doesn’t mean that the accident is any less serious. Solicitors in Cardross admit that these accidents can be worse and have higher fatality rates.
Dangerous driving causes many deaths and accidents on the roads. If you are lucky enough to escape with an injury you may be able to make a compensation claim.
Road accidents for pedestrians
Road crossings are not always in the best places. Crossing a road straight after a turn in the road could mean there are vehicles driving too quickly to stop in time. Speeding kills a lot of people and if you escape with a couple of injuries you are very lucky.
Solicitors in Cardross, and the experts with Accident Advice Helpline represent many cases where pedestrians have been hit by careless drivers. Many are successful. When an accident happens you will be surprised how many people come to your aid. Even if they cannot do anything they are there to offer support and help in any way they can.
As pedestrians do not have the same barriers as a car framework offers the injuries can be more severe and the amount of compensation to be awarded could be relative.
Solicitors in Cardross and claims
In the nature of this type of accident it is likely that you may not have been able to get any photographs of the accident. Solicitors in Cardross have the resources to get copies of any photographs taken from the police and other emergency services so if you are unable to get evidence your solicitors can do that on your behalf.
Using these photographs and any eye witness accounts they are able to retrieve your solicitor can build a strong case to present to the other parties and help you to win the compensation you deserve.
If you were involved in an accident on the road that was not your fault you could be entitled to some compensation from the other party. Being a pedestrian doesn’t mean you should be treated any differently so by making a claim you are standing up for yourself.
