Road traffic accidents are unfortunately a common occurrence on Britain’s roads today. Crashes can happen on country lanes, busy motorways and through towns or cities – often involving those travelling in the affected vehicles, but occasionally impacting upon pedestrians too. If you have been involved in an accident as a passer-by whereby someone else was to blame, no win no fee pedestrian accident claims exist to ensure you are protected.
What type of injuries are covered by compensation?
No matter what your injury type, you will be covered by compensation if you fulfil the eligibility criteria in order to make no win no fee pedestrian accident claim. You can check this in one simple step by using Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second tool, which will also provide an estimation of the compensation figure you may be entitled to. Whilst this depends on the specificities of your case, a ballpark amount can be accurately calculated with knowledge of your injury type and severity, based on the outcome of other similar cases.
The injuries that you may sustain as a pedestrian involved in a road traffic accident may include:
- Head or brain injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Broken bones
- Soft tissue injuries
- Knee injuries
Aside from your physical injuries, you will likely feel very shaken as a result of your accident, feeling the strain on a psychological level too.
