Pedestrian Accident Claims

Children and elderly people are the most vulnerable road users. However, all people are subject to possible road traffic accidents as pedestrians. You should claim financial compensation if you have been injured as a pedestrian in a road traffic accident.

Pedestrian accidents can be caused by motorists and cyclists because the drivers are not paying attention or travelling too fast. Whatever the circumstances, injuries of this type of accident can cause life-changing, life-threatening or even fatal consequences.

The types of injuries that can be sustained as a pedestrian in a road traffic accident can greatly vary in severity. Some injuries include:

  • Broken bones and cuts.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries
  • Back and spine injuries.
  • Amputations.

If you want to find out if you can make a compensation claim, contact our team for a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss your case. Call 0800 731 7555 or complete the enquiry form to get in touch.

In the time immediately following your accident, you will prioritise your aftercare, including arranging rehabilitation treatment or cover for loss of earnings. However, you should consider that, in most cases, you must make a claim within three years of the date of the accident.

Cases of this nature can be complex, particularly if you believe that you may be at fault, for example, if you stepped out into the road without looking or crossed at traffic lights which were green for vehicles. It should be noted that the law offers more protection to pedestrians (and cyclists). Although you may have to accept some responsibility, claiming compensation from the driver is still possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I want to make a claim?
Starting your claim is easy; just call us on the number above or fill out the contact form and we’ll call you back.
How long do I have to make a claim?
Generally, you can make a claim for compensation up to three years from the date of your injury. This is what we call the limitation period. There are, however, some circumstances where the limitation period is two years. To find out more, call us.
How long will it take?

Every case is unique so it’s difficult to give a precise time frame as it depends on a number of factors. If liability is admitted during our investigation into the cause of your injury, the case will be settled significantly quicker than if it’s disputed. Another factor that can speed up a claim is if you return any documentation we send you as soon as possible and respond quickly to any questions we may have.

The extent of your injury also has a huge bearing on your case. Generally, the more serious the injury and the long-term implications of it, the longer it may take to fully calculate your claim’s value. We’re also bound by Civil Procedure rules, which allow the defendant’s solicitors time to investigate the circumstances around your injury before they have to respond to us.

What's after the event insurance?

In certain circumstances we may recommend that you take out an insurance policy which is known as After the Event Insurance (ATE). After The Event Insurance is insurance which covers the legal costs and expenses involved in litigation.

The fees relating to After The Event insurance can vary and are deductible from the damages awarded should your claim be successful. Further information in respect of After The Event Insurance will be provided in our client care information.
