What is a pedestrian accident?
Pedestrians are the most vulnerable road users. Being involved in an accident with a motorist can be life threatening as pedestrians have no protection against injury.
Pedestrian injuries are usually caused by motorists driving dangerously, negligent driving, driving under the influence, ignoring or not paying attention to road signs, losing control of the vehicle or speeding.
Our specialist personal injury lawyers are experienced in dealing with pedestrian accident claims for a number of injuries including whiplash, broken or fractured bones, brain injury, spinal injury and fatal accidents.
As well as providing sensitive advice and support, our expert team can put you in touch with a number of organisations that can help you with everything from rehabilitation to counselling and providing support for your family.
Winnning pedestrian accident compensation through the Motor Insurers Bureau
It is a legal requirement that vehicle owners ensure they have valid insurance. However, you may still be able to claim compensation if you or your loved one were injured in a hit and run incident involving an uninsured driver.
The Motor Insurers Bureau was set up to provide compensation to the victims of road traffic accidents in cases where the driver was uninsured or untraceable.
Our expert lawyers have experience in dealing with claiming compensation through the Motor Insurers Bureau and can explain the process to you, keeping you up to date with any information throughout the course of your claim.
Claiming compensation for a pedestrian accident
Our specialist personal injury lawyers are experts in dealing with pedestrian accidents and can talk through your situation with you over the phone, or face to face if you prefer. We can provide you with some initial free advice to help you decide if you wish to proceed with making a claim.
We have experience in winning pedestrian accident claims for a range of injuries, from minor injuries such as whiplash and broken or fractured bones to more serious injuries including brain trauma, spinal injuries and fatal accidents.
We understand that winning compensation can make things easier with some injuries requiring people to take time off work, travel for treatment or make alternations in their homes. Our dedicated team will do everything they can to ensure your life can return to normal as soon as possible.
No win no fee pedestrian accident claims
Many pedestrian accident claims are eligible for a no win no fee funding agreement, which means:
- If you win your case your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any legal costs not paid by your opponent and the lawyer’s success fee will be deducted from the compensation that you receive.
- If you lose your case, you won’t pay anything.
How long do I have to make the claim?
You usually have three years from the date of the accident or knowing about your injury, to pursue a claim. There are some exceptions, which we can advise you on.
Speak to us as soon as you can, so our personal injury lawyers can start helping you through the process of claiming compensation and getting any other support you need.
How much compensation could I receive from a personal injury claim?
Every injury is different, so it is important to get expert advice from lawyers who really understand the unique nature of each personal injury claim.
The amount you can claim will depend on a number of factors, such as the severity of your injury, as well as any financial losses you have suffered or lifestyle changes you have made as a result. Our specialist personal injury solicitors have the experience to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
