The Highway Code states that motor vehicle users have a duty of care to prevent road accidents to pedestrians and must adjust their driving according to the changing circumstances of the road. However road accidents occur and common examples are failing to reduce speed when it appears likely that someone is going to cross or step on to the highway, not being mindful of pedestrians when driving through busy areas and not giving the car in front adequate room to maneuver.
However, despite the protection offered by The Highway Code, accidents to pedestrians can still happen. Often those affected are among our most vulnerable road users: children or the elderly, whose injuries can range from minor scrapes to broken limbs and more severe cases requiring extensive medical attention.
In cases where it can be proven that road accidents have been caused as a result of careless or negligent driving on the part of vehicle users, there may be a basis for a personal injury claim.
Some scenarios which might lead to road accident claims include cases where the driver:
Did not see a pedestrian crossing the road
Was driving too fast for road conditions
Failed to pay attention to traffic calming signs or pedestrian crossings
Was distracted by the use of a phone
Had been driving under the influence of drink or drugs
If you have found yourself in a situation similar to those outlined above, you may be entitled to receive compensation. Even if you feel that you may have been partially responsible for the accident or if it was the fault of a hit-and-run or uninsured driver, you may still be able to seek personal injury compensation.

Accident At Work
The Health and Safety Executive states that employers have a duty to protect you in the work place and ensure you are given a safe environment in which to perform your job, regardless of whether you work in an office, warehouse or other public building. However, accidents a work place accident can happen to anyone, no matter how much care is taken by you or your employer.
In some cases, particularly where your employer has failed in their duty of care, you may be entitled to seek work accident compensation for any pain, suffering or loss of earnings brought about as a result of the accident.
Some common types of accidents at work which may lead to a compensation claim include:
Trips, slips or falls
Lifting or moving objects injuries
Accidents involving unsafe equipment, eg collapsing scaffolding, faulty machinery
Injuries caused by falling objects
Many work accident claims can have an effect on your ability to do your job in the short term and, where serious injuries are involved, find work in future. In cases such as these, you have a right to investigate what compensation is available to you.
Remember, your employer is insured against such incidents, so pursuing a work injury claim will not affect your position within the company.

Slip or Trip in a Public Place
Tripping or slipping in a public place can cause a lot more than just embarrassment for the victim. Often, injuries sustained in such incidents are severe and require hospital treatment, with other possible effects including the need to take time off work or undergo further prolonged medical care, which is common in tripping and slipping accidents that result in broken limbs.
Many tripping and slipping accidents are entirely preventable. Every time you enter a public place that is owned by someone else, whether it is a shop, cinema or swimming pool, the owner has a duty of care towards you to ensure that your passage through is unhindered and safe.
Sometimes this responsibility is neglected, leading to potentially dangerous scenarios where tripping or slipping can occur. If you are the victim of an accident and it can be proved that the owner of a property or public area has failed to provide a safe environment to move through, there may be a basis to make a compensation claim.
Typical cases seen by the lawyers at The Accident Team include incidents where:
Spillages were not adequately cleaned or signposted
Hard-to-navigate areas have been poorly lit
Proper support or guard rails were not in place
Trip hazards have been left unfixed or unsignposted
In addition, local councils have a duty to ensure that public areas under their responsibility are maintained to allow for the safe passage of pedestrians. Raised utility grids, broken paving stones and inadequate safety barriers can all lead to slipping or tripping accidents and, in many examples, a case for personal injury compensation.
