Zebra Crossing Injury Compensation Claims
While zebra crossings are mostly safe for pedestrians, a negligent road user can fail to stop in time or make no attempt to stop at all. As many pedestrians expect the car, van or other road user to stop, they can actually be the scene of serious incidents. It is also possible for one vehicle to stop at a zebra crossing, only for the car behind them to continue. As such, zebra crossings can be dangerous for pedestrians and other road users. If you’ve suffered any kind of injury that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to make a zebra crossing injury compensation claim!
Here at Tylers Solicitors, we can help you to make a claim for compensation following any kind of zebra crossing injury that wasn’t your fault. Our experienced team offer no-win, no-fee legal services to help people get the compensation they’re entitled to. Whether you’ve been hit as a pedestrian, or by another vehicle while stopping at a zebra crossing, call Tylers Solicitors today!
What are the Most Common Causes of Zebra Crossing Injuries in the UK?
In most cases, zebra crossing injuries are caused by a negligent driver failing to stop and either hitting a pedestrian or another vehicle. As part of a zebra crossing accident, one of the parties involved is almost always either a pedestrian or a stationary vehicle. It is possible that a negligent driver could swerve to avoid a pedestrian in the road, and hit an oncoming vehicle, but that is extremely rare.
What are the Common Injuries Caused by an Accident at a Zebra Crossing?
A zebra crossing injury normally involves fractured bones or long-term damage which can lead to loss of limbs, life or mobility. In the worst cases, these incidents can cause serious head injuries, including brain damage, which can have a major impact on your life. If you’ve been the victim of a traffic collision, or a rear-end incident at a zebra crossing, you are likely to suffer neck injuries, including whiplash. Whatever kind of injury you’ve suffered, get in touch with Tylers’ legal experts today.
Is it Ever the Pedestrian’s Fault at a Zebra Crossing Accident?
A pedestrian always has right of way at a zebra crossing, even if the lights are damaged or turned off. There are some instances where you might not be eligible to claim, for example if you stepped in front of an emergency vehicle with its lights flashing. You also need to be on the zebra crossing to qualify for right of way. Crossing the road even a few feet away from the designated crossing means you do not have right of way, and any injury you suffer will be your own fault.
