Pedestrian accident claims

We are catastrophic and serious injury solicitors who provide legal advice together with financial, physical and emotional support.

Pedestrians – particularly children – are one of the most vulnerable groups of road users in the UK, with pedestrian accidents accounting for around 24% of all road fatalities. While there is plenty pedestrians can do to take care on the road such as following the Green Cross Code, ensuring their visibility and refraining from using headphones or mobile phones, in many incidents drivers simply won’t be paying due care and attention, and an accident will happen.

These accidents can result in extremely serious injuries including broken bones, spinal injury and brain injury. These kinds of injuries can leave you unable to go back to work and can result in a complete change to your day-to-day life. Not being able to return to work can cause financial difficulties and result in further strain being put on you and your loved ones.

It is important that you speak to a solicitor who has proven expertise in complex compensation cases, as often pedestrian accidents can lead to life-changing, serious injuries. You need to make sure that your solicitor has the highest level of experience and specialist skills to successfully deal with your claim, as well as helping you with much-needed support.

We can help you, or a loved one, if you have sadly been involved in a road accident as a pedestrian. We understand that no amount of money can make up for the serious injuries and trauma you have sustained, but a claim for compensation can help you to get your life back on track.

I feel so lucky to have chosen CFG to handle my case as when you have an accident you don’t know who to Trust. From day one they made me feel secure, reassured and they also kept me fully informed throughout the whole process. I know that I received first class legal advice, and they used top experts to support my case. I can’t fault their service and am thankful for everything that they did for me.

Making a claim for compensation

When you make a compensation claim, it is important to have as much evidence as possible to prove that it was someone else’s fault. If you are able, get the contact details of the driver and any witnesses and make sure you have reported the incident to the police. You should also have your injuries assessed by a medical professional as soon as possible after the accident.

In most cases, the driver of the vehicle will stop, but on rare occasions, the accident will become a hit and run. If the police are able to trace the driver, we will proceed as we normally would. If the driver remains untraced, we can still help you make a claim against the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB). This is an organisation set up to deal with claims on behalf of victims who have been injured by uninsured or untraceable drivers.

We have over 30 years’ experience successfully claiming compensation for pedestrians involved in road accidents. Common claims include cases where:

  • The driver was speeding
  • The driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • The driver ignored traffic lights
  • The driver was distracted by someone else in the car
  • The driver was texting or talking on their mobile phone
  • The driver simply was not paying attention to the road

Whether the driver stops after the accident or not, we will be able to help you claim the compensation you deserve to help get your life back on track.
