Pedestrian Injury Advice
Between 2012 and 2020, the average number of pedestrians killed in road traffic accidents per year was 430. The peak year was 2017 with 470 fatalities, and the lowest was 2020 with 346. Although the trend is downwards, it is still far too many, and the number of incidents where pedestrians are injured or seriously injured runs into the tens of thousands each year. And because pedestrian accidents are so common, you need to know that there is experienced and reliable legal support available if you need it.
Pedestrians are extremely vulnerable to serious injury if hit by a motor vehicle or even a cyclist. Just like cyclist accident claims and motorcycle accident claims, the most common reasons for pedestrian accidents are:
- Driver not paying attention
- Driving too fast
- Driving under the influence of alcohol
- Driving under the influence of drugs
- Drivers ignoring lights
In all these cases, the driver has broken the law and the pedestrian is the innocent victim, and therefore has every right to seek justice and recover costs for rehabilitation and loss of earnings, as well as to compensate for pain and suffering, which in extreme cases can be life-changing, so if you or a loved one have been injured as a pedestrian, you should contact our pedestrian accident claim solicitors in Leeds and Yorkshire to get trusted and professional legal advice.
