Pedestrian accident


Pedestrian accidents are some of the most common types of accidents in the UK, with the young and elderly being particularly vulnerable. Statistics have shown that an increasing number of injury claims resulting from pedestrians being hit by cars are filed every year. While most injuries sustained from these types of accidents are comparatively minor, many result in catastrophic injury, sometimes fatal.

Accidents and personal injury

How does a pedestrian accident occur? Although some accidents are caused by pedestrian action such as failing to observe traffic lights, the majority are caused by driver negligence. The most common types of claims include cases where a driver was speeding, under the influence or distracted.

If you are unsure of what to do if you’ve been involved in an accident as a pedestrian, the best thing to do first would be to see a medical professional specialising in treating pedestrian accident injuries. Your medical report is a strong piece of evidence our solicitors will use to support your claim.

The symptoms of pedestrian road traffic accident injuries vary widely depending on the severity of the accident, ranging from minor cuts and bruises to limb loss, paralysis or even death. Some of the long term effects of being involved in a road accident as a pedestrian include disability, brain damage, depression and the high cost of long term rehabilitation.
