Whiplash injury in Bodmin

How pedestrians and drivers can coexist safely

Both pedestrians and drivers are expected to pay attention equally when on the roads. It is not up to either a pedestrian or a driver to keep the other safe — each must look out for themselves and make sure that they are using good road safety practices to ensure that they do not cause or get involved in accidents which could lead to whiplash injury in Bodmin or something more serious. Pedestrians and drivers can easily coexist on the roads, as long as they know how to keep an eye out for the other and practice their own road safety skills.

If you sustain a whiplash injury in Bodmin and feel that it is the fault of someone else on the road, rather than yourself, you may be able to claim compensation as long as you can prove that you are not to blame for the accident.

The best way to prove this, and to find out whether or not you have a strong enough case for compensation, is to call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile, and talk through your accident with the team.

Our team will ask questions about your accident and whiplash injury in Bodmin to help you to decide whether or not you have a good enough case for a successful compensation claim. If you do, then you will be passed over to our experienced injury lawyers, who will work on your behalf to process your claim so that you shouldn’t even have to go to court.

Tips for pedestrians

  • Wear clothing which makes you more visible. This may not be necessary during the day, but in foggy or rainy conditions you should wear bright clothing to make yourself more visible to cars. At night, you may want to wear fluorescents so that cars can see you as you cross the road.
  • Only cross at designated crossings. Even if this is not very convenient for you, you are more likely to stay safe if you choose a real crossing to use.
  • Stop before you cross the road. Always look to both sides and check that there is nothing coming before you step out into the road, even if you believe it is clear.

Tips for drivers to avoid a whiplash injury in Bodmin

  • Slow down on busy roads with lots of pedestrians, so that you can brake if someone tries to cross suddenly.
  • Give way to pedestrians as much as possible. Of course you cannot always do this, but when you see pedestrians gathering at a crossing which may not be working, allow them to pass you before you continue on.
  • Watch out for pedestrians as well as other vehicles. Make sure you are looking out for those on foot as much as you are watching other cars whenever you are on the road.
