To make Wyre claims for road accidents, you do not need to have been involved in a cut and dried case where another car has hit yours due to the other driver’s negligence. Although this is the sort of thing that most people think of when they think about road accident claims, there are lots of other types of claims you can make revolving around accidents on the road, and you don’t need to be the driver whose car has been hit. Here are some of the less common accidents which you may be able to claim for.
Being hit as a pedestrian
If you are crossing the road and are hit by a car which has run a red light, was speeding or not paying attention to markings on the road, such as a zebra crossing, then you may have a great case for compensation. Any time you are hit as a pedestrian, as long as you were following the rules of the road and not walking in the road when you shouldn’t be, you should have a great case for compensation.
Hitting another car
You may even be able to make a claim for compensation for injuries you suffered when you hit another car. Obviously you will need to prove that the other driver was at fault so this is a claim that you can only make if the other car pulled out suddenly, stopped suddenly in front of you on a motorway or other high speed road and so on. If you were tailgating the other driver at the time then you will not be able to make a claim.
