You can be injured as a pedestrian just as easily as you can be injured when you are driving a car. If you want to stay safe on the roads then the best thing for you to do is to pay attention to what you are doing as much as possible, look out for cars that might not be doing what they should be, are speeding or are driven by a distracted driver.
However, if you are still injured by a driver, as a pedestrian, you may be able to make a claim for compensation using solicitors in Sydenham, who can put together the strongest possible case on your behalf. Here are some of the types of accidents you can claim for as a pedestrian.
Car mounting the pavement
This may be one of the easiest types of claims for you to win, as any car mounting the pavement is clearly not doing what they are supposed to be. If you are hit by a car, which has come onto the pavement, or is driving in an area designated solely for pedestrians, you should easily be able to make a claim against the driver.
Car running a red light
As long as you can prove that the lights were in your favour, any driver who has attempted to run a red light and then run into you instead should be liable to pay out on a compensation claim that you make.
Car going the wrong way on a one way street
This also applies to any car which has made a turn in a part of the road where there is no turning in this direction. As long as the driver was clearly not obeying the rules of the road, and you clearly were, it should be easy for you to make a claim for compensation against them.
