Road traffic accidents frequently happen between 7-10am or 4-7pm when people are rushing to get to work or school and visibility can be poor. Lots of drivers are on the road at the same time and care is not always taken to look properly at junctions, judge vehicle speeds and rash decisions can be made when under pressure.

If you have been in an accident as a pedestrian that was not your fault and you suffered an injury as a result of a collision then you may be entitled to car accident compensation for your pain and suffering or any loss of earnings.
