Hit by a vehicle through no fault of your own? Seek your legal entitlement to compensation!

Many drivers of vehicles may not give pedestrians the same courtesy and consideration that they may give other road users.

As a result, many pedestrians are badly injured in road traffic accidents caused through no fault of their own.

If you, or someone close to you, has sustained a personal injury as a result of a Stirling car accident, that was caused through no fault of your own within the last 3 years, then you may be eligible to pursue personal injury compensation.

How are pedestrians injured?

Pedestrians may become injured in a Stirling car accident, by:

  • pedestrians may fail to cross the carriageway in a safe and appropriate place
  • pedestrians may fail to look adequately before crossing the road
  • other road users may not see the pedestrian clearly in time
  • other road users may fail to give way to pedestrians
  • other road users may not obey road signs and road markings causing pedestrians to become injured
  • other road users may lose control of their vehicle through dangerous driving, driving recklessly and through driving whilst under the influence of drugs or alcohol and mount the pavement injuring pedestrians
  • pedestrians may fall or stumble into the carriageway and become injured by passing traffic

What can pedestrians do to reduce the likelihood of becoming injured in a Stirling car accident?

Pedestrians may consider:

  1. wearing reflective or light clothing that enables other road users to identify their presence on their approach
  2. carrying a torch at night and in poor visibility to ensure that they can see where they are walking and to alert other road users to their presence
  3. use designated crossing places that increases the likelihood of traffic stopping to allow you to cross safely
  4. always walk across a road, never run as you may slip, trip, or fall, increasing the likelihood of being involved in a collision with a moving vehicle
  5. never cross the carriageway at junctions, on roundabouts or dual carriageways. Use a footbridge to cross busier roads safely.

Injuries caused in a pedestrian related accident

Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable to becoming seriously injured in a car accident because they do not have the protection of a vehicle’s shell around them.

If they are involved in a Stirling car accident, then they are at an increased risk of:

  • broken, fractured, or dislocated bones
  • bleeding and lacerations
  • internal injury
  • damaged spleen
  • broken pelvis
  • neck injury
  • back injury
  • spinal injury
  • paralysis
  • head injury
  • brain injury
  • fatal injury
