HGV / Pedestrian Accidents
Accidents often occur between HGV’s and pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.

We deal with many cases where pedestrians/cyclists/wheelchairs and motorcycles are struck by HGV’s when they are passing close in front or close alongside the heavy goods vehicle.
Here are 2 examples
In the first case above this gentleman is about to disappear behind the television.
