What is a pedestrian accident?

A pedestrian accident refers to a collision involving a person and a vehicle. Pedestrians using a crossing or travelling in the road are vulnerable road users and therefore in more danger of being involved in a road traffic accident. The pedestrians are always more likely to be hurt in a motoring accident, therefore, if you have been hurt in an accident, contact Solicitors On Your Side now. In 2019 itself there have been 470 pedestrian fatalities from traffic accidents, which is the highest out of all categories, putting pedestrians at the highest risk.

Causes of Traffic Accidents involving a pedestrian

Pedestrian accidents are mostly caused by careless and dangerous vehicle users. However, there is a range of things that can cause accidents, including:

  • Fast driving, meaning that the driver cannot react as fast to oncoming pedestrians on the crossing or the road.
  • Driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs
  • Failing to stop at traffic lights, when pedestrians are walking.

Children are most likely to be hurt in a pedestrian accident. Drivers must be most careful down busy streets where children may be running or playing. It is the driver’s responsibility to ensure the safety of everyone on the road, and make sure they are always acting correctly and in the best manner. Sometimes, pavement facilities aren’t available for pedestrians meaning they may have to walk on the side of the road, which is when motor users must be most careful. They must also be extra cautious at night and during weather conditions when pedestrians are hardest to be seen.

What can I claim for when hurt in a traffic accident?

There is a range of things that individuals can claim for when involved in a traffic accident, these include but not limited to:

  • Broken limbs due to a traffic accident
  • Back or neck injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Amputations

Family members can even claim for fatalities due to a pedestrian traffic accident. We understand that no amount of money can compensate for the loss of a loved one, however, it can help ease any financial burden that you may face because of it.
