How we work
Pedestrians are considered the most vulnerable of all road users due to the lack of physical protection. While some accidents can result in minor cuts and bruises, others can have more serious consequences - often resulting in life-changing injuries.
Our solicitors have a great deal of experience in handling pedestrian accident claims involving the following:
- Zebra/pelican/toucan crossings
- School gates crossings
- Incidents on country roads
- A pedestrian walking between parked vehicles
- Accidents caused by defective surfaces
- Cycle lanes
- Pedestrian zones in towns/city centres
- Accidents in public
- Incidents involving running/jogging/dog walking
- Pedestrians hurt when a car has reversed into them
- Crossing roads between vehicles in traffic
If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, it is important that you obtain the details of the driver of the vehicle that hit you. Witnesses can also play a crucial role in pedestrian accidents. If you are concerned that the driver was uninsured, report the incident to the police as soon as possible.
