Pedestrian Accident Compensation Claims

Pedestrian Accident Compensation Claims

 


As a pedestrian, any type of accident on the road can cause serious injury – or, in some unfortunate circumstances, even fatality.
Modern cars are designed primarily to protect the driver and passengers, although in recent years the addition of various safety devices to the outside of cars have helped to reduce injuries caused to pedestrians who are hit by cars.
If you have been involved in an accident as a pedestrian that wasn’t your fault, then you are entitled to make a claim for compensation – even if the car left the scene of the accident. If you are hit by a vehicle whilst on the pavement, or pedestrian crossing, we would expect you to have a strong case for compensation backed up by the UK highway code.
Liability for road traffic accidents involving pedestrians can be complicated if the pedestrian has not crossed at a designated pedestrian crossing. In situations such as this compensation would depend on who was liable for the accident. If you have stepped out onto the road without looking, you may be deemed to be at fault for the accident. Whatever the circumstances, we implore you to speak to our legal team who will review your case and provide you with an honest, professional, opinion.
Claims National specialise in providing legal help and support for people who have suffered injuries in a pedestrian accident. We can help you make the right decision and secure the compensation that’s right for you.

Every year in the UK, hundreds of pedestrians are killed or injured in road accidents. This shows the vulnerability of pedestrians on the roads and the risk of pedestrian road accidents increases as the evenings become darker earlier in Autumn and Winter.

As a victim of a pedestrian accident, you could suffer broken limbs, back or neck injuries, paralysis, and head and brain injuries.

Pedestrian accidents are usually caused due to the negligence of a driver on the road. This could be due to various circumstances; a speeding driver, a driver was under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, a driver ignoring traffic lights, or a driver simply not paying attention.

Pedestrian road accidents can not only causesevere physical damage, but can also result in psychiatric illnesses, such as PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder). If this is the case, you can claim for additional compensation for your pain and suffering, costs of any therapy, rehabilitation and medication, ensuring that you receive sufficient help for your illness.
