Starting a pedestrian accident claim
Worryingly, the number of serious injuries and fatalities of pedestrians is rising year on year.
Despite actions to make it safer for pedestrians – by for example installing increased crossings and road signs – pedestrian accidents are on the rise.
Even at low speeds, a pedestrian accident can have catastrophic results. Pedestrians are more exposed than any other road user, 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.
Pedestrians and the Highway Code
The Highway Code is a legal document that sets out the strict responsibilities of each driver. These responsibilities include maintaining the road safety standards of their vehicle, as well as making sure they are fit to drive.
If a driver has been negligent in those duties, and you have been injured as a result, you have every right to make a pedestrian accident claim.
We don’t expect you to read the Highway Code to understand what a driver has done wrong. We know it like the back of our hands and can give you all the advice you need.
What will compensation cover?
Whilst we hope it won’t be, recovery from a pedestrian accident can sometimes be a long and exhausting journey. Compensation from a pedestrian road claim ensures that some justice is restored.
The amount of compensation awarded for a pedestrian accident claim reflects:
- The extent of the physical injury
- Loss of earnings
- Cost of care
- Damage to property, for example your clothing or any damage caused to belongings in a bag
- Emotional trauma and repercussions
- Travel costs
- Cost of adaptions to your home or car
Every accident is different, but with our personal injury specialists by your side you can feel confident that your injury claim will be handled with care and expertise.
We’ll listen to you and do everything we can to make sure that you get all the compensation you are entitled to.
