Pedestrian Claims

Every year thousands of pedestrians are killed or seriously injured in road traffic accidents.

Many never claim the compensation they deserve because – unlike car drivers – they are not insured. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

If you are a pedestrian who has been hurt in a road traffic accident you will require a specialist legal team to ensure you get the compensation you are entitled to.

You won’t have an insurer backing your claim so it’s vital that you have specialist legal advisers fighting your corner. Our friendly and accessible experts have the technical knowledge and resources to do precisely that.

In addition, it is often the case that a driver will attempt to deny responsibility for knocking a person over and without proper and robust legal representation from experts who know the relevant case law dealing with these types of accident, you could be denied the accident compensation you deserve.

Sadly, many people who are pedestrians involved in an accident suffer serious life changing injuries.

A victim may have suffered serious head or spinal injuries and require a very involved and complicated care plan, the cost of which then needs to be incorporated into their compensation claim.

If you are seriously hurt you may not be able to work, in which case you may require urgent up front interim payments to help you financially.

Our team of specialist solicitors are skilled in dealing with serious injury and the impact that this can have your ability to work and any needs you might have for further care, on-going medical treatment as well as a financial plan to ensure you are adequately provided for.

We have a wide range of medical experts and rehabilitation companies at our disposal to ensure correct diagnosis, prognosis and treatment regimes are delivered.
