If you have been knocked over by a motor vehicle and injured whilst walking on a pavement, then you will most likely be entitled to compensation.
Vehicles can suddenly veer from the main road and mount pavements due to:-
- Driver error (health or distraction).
- Vehicle failure (brakes, steering or accelerator).
- Driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
There are a number of interesting cases where pedestrians have been hit by the wing mirror of passing buses or crushed against railings by turning buses. You can find them here and look for the category "pedestrians on pavements."
