Pedestrian Accident Claims
If you have been involved in an accident as a pedestrian we want you to know that there is a dedicated and compassionate team of personal injury lawyers here to help you.
Our expert personal injury solicitors are committed to getting you the compensation you deserve with your no-win-no-fee pedestrian accident claim.
The number of serious injuries and fatalities of pedestrians in rising year on year despite efforts to prioritise pedestrian safety with stricter speed restrictions, increased crossings and added road signs warning motorists of pedestrians. Even at low speeds, a pedestrian accident can have catastrophic results.
In an accident, a pedestrian is more exposed than any other road user. Trying to cross the road or even walking along a footpath, pedestrians are vulnerable to distracted or stressed drivers, reckless road users, or a motorist’s unpredictable loss of control.
Without warning we can go from vulnerable to victim, and are left to deal with the potentially life-changing aftermath.
The Highway Code
The Highway Code is a legal document that sets out strict responsibilities of each driver. These responsibilities include maintaining the road safety standards of their vehicle as well as their fitness to drive.
If a driver has been negligent in their duties as a road user and you have been injured as a result, you have every right to make a pedestrian accident claim.
We don’t expect you to go away and read the Highway Code; we know it like the back of our hands so that you don’t have to.
What will compensation cover?
We hope it won’t be, but your recovery may be a long and exhausting journey. Compensation from a pedestrian road claim might not make it faster but it is a step in the right direction.
When you make your claim, the sum of your compensation will be a fair reflection of:
- The physical injury you incurred
- Loss of earnings
- Cost of care
- Damage to property, for example your clothing or damaged belongings in a bag
- Emotional trauma and repercussions
- Travel costs
- Cost of adaptions to your home or car
Every accident is different, but with the personal injury specialists from AWH Solicitors by your side you can be assured your injury claim will be handled with care of expertise.
We listen to your case and do everything we can to ensure that you get all of the compensation that you are entitled to.

No win no fee and legal expenses
Our no win no fee solicitors in Manchester regularly assess the prospects of winning your case at all stages of your claim.
If we are able to offer you a Conditional Fee Agreement for your claim, you will not have to pay our legal costs, however, if you lose your claim you may have to pay your opponent’s legal costs.
Legal expenses insurance, which is often provided with some motor insurance policies, can be used to pay your opponent’s legal fees. To protect you, we take out a legal expenses insurance policy for you when taking on your no win, no fee claim, if you do not already have a policy.
Disbursements for legal costs
If you win, your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs and disbursements.
Any legal costs which are not paid by your opponent may be deducted from your compensation. However, you will not pay anything if your claim is unsuccessful and not until it has come to the end.
Please be aware that cost may differ depending on your personal circumstances.
