It is thought that around 30,000 pedestrians are injured in road traffic accidents every year. While most of the injuries sustained are, thankfully, relatively minor and the pedestrians involved make a complete recovery, this isn’t always the case. A pedestrian who is involved in accidents through no fault of their own can be seriously injured or even killed.
If you are a pedestrian who has been injured in a road traffic accident, by a car, motorbike, lorry or another vehicle, you may well be able to make a claim for compensation. It is certainly worth doing this as if you are injured in an accident that was not your fault, you are entitled to claim for personal injury compensation.

Pedestrian Injuries – claim the compensation you deserve
This compensation will take into account any loss of earnings you have suffered as a result of the accident, such as if you have had to take time off work to recover. If your loss of earnings is continuing due to a long term condition sustained in the accident, the compensation should also reflect your future loss of earnings, as well as any expenses you have incurred due to the accident.
Pedestrian Claims- appoint a specialist injury claim solicitor
It’s important you seek specialist advice from a personal injury solicitor as soon as you can to start the process moving on your case, as evidence will need to be gathered to prove that the other party was in the wrong and that your injury was caused by their negligence.
We are personal injury experts — our solicitors are accredited members of both the Law Society Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Panels.

Don’t delay making your claim
You also need to make your personal injury claim within three years of the accident or within three years of a diagnosis of injury if this is later than the accident itself.
Pedestrian Claims – common causes
Amongst the situations in which a pedestrian can make a personal injury claim following a road traffic accident are:
• An accident caused by a car being out of control or speeding, which then leads to a collision with the pedestrian.
• An accident caused by a vehicle failing to stop while the pedestrian was trying to legally cross the road, either at a designated crossing or at a safe point to cross if no designated crossing was provided.
If you think you might have a personal injury claim but are unsure as to whether your case counts, please get in touch with our team of specialist solicitors. We’ll be more than happy to advise you.
