Pedestrian Accident Claims
Although we rarely think about the potential risks of a road incident while walking along a pavement, pedestrians are still at risk of being involved in a road traffic accident. Every year, hundreds of pedestrians are injured or killed by motorists.
Unfortunately the most vulnerable pedestrians who are at risk are often children and the elderly, who account for a significant number of pedestrian casualties.
Motorists have an obligation to other road users, ensuring they always drive in a safe manner, however this isn’t always the case.
PHR’s dedicated team of road traffic accident specialists offer a wealth of experience and legal knowledge, helping you receive the compensation you deserve. Speak to a solicitor to see if you have a valid claim today, call us on 0800 781 3894 or fill out an enquiry form.
Making A Pedestrian Injury Claim
Pedestrians are often injured as a result of vehicles driving too fast, or failing to observe the rules of the road.
To help your case it’s important to take note of the name and addresses of any witnesses of the accident if possible. You should also report the accident to the police immediately.
At Percy Hughes & Roberts Solicitors we offer a ‘no win, no fee’ consultation where we will assess the circumstances of your accident and provide clear advice as to the most appropriate action to take.
The Importance of Making A Claim
The injuries sustained following a pedestrian accident can often be severe and in some cases can have serious long lasting effects on the victim’s quality of life.
Depending on the type of injuries sustained, you could suffer from a loss of earnings due to time off to recuperate.
In serious circumstances, ongoing medical treatment is often required, along with regular visits to the doctor. You may also find it difficult to take care of daily chores such as preparing meals or visiting the shops – meaning you’ll have to rely on others to take care of you.
Compensation provides you with the finances required to ensure your finances remain in order after your incident, giving you the opportunity to take care of yourself and recover.
