Pedestrian accident claims


Make an enquiry:

Road accidents involving pedestrians account for more than 23,000 casualties every year in Britain. Many accidents could be avoided with greater care being taken by vehicle drivers.

Pedestrians are owed a duty of care by all road users and if a driver fails to control a vehicle and is in collision with a pedestrian, a compensation claim may be made against them.

More about pedestrian accident claims  

If you are a pedestrian involved in a collision you might be entitled to pursue personal injury compensation.

You should seek legal advice on your position and we would be happy to help you with your case.   On many occasions the pedestrian may well be at fault for the collision as a result of stepping out into the road. Generally in our experience it is always worth exploring whether a claim can be made even in circumstances where the pedestrian feels that they were to blame.   Find out today whether you can claim - we offer a no win no fee service that means you wont pay a penny to pursue your case.
