If you’ve been hit by a vehicle or affected by a road traffic accident in some way, you may want to make car accident claims, even if you were a pedestrian at the time of the incident.

When pedestrians are involved in road traffic accidents, they can often sustain very serious injuries so making car accident claims could be extremely important. If your recovery is likely to take a long time, you may find that you’re unable to return to work.
Although many people do receive sick pay from their employers, a significant number of people don’t. This means that an unexpected accident or injury could affect your income. However, there’s no need to let your injuries affect your finances indefinitely.
If you make car accident claims, you could obtain compensation for your injuries and claim back any money that you’ve lost as a result of being hurt, such as lost income.
Of course, in order to be eligible to make car accident claims in Wealden, you do need to be able to show that you didn’t cause the incident and it wasn’t your fault. When this type of incident occurs, the police will often investigate the accident to determine exactly what happened, which could help you when you start to make your compensation claim.
Similarly, your personal injury lawyers will be able to assist you when it comes to proving exactly who or what caused your injuries.
What type of medical treatment have you received?
Although you do need to have received some form of medical treatment in order to be eligible to make a compensation claim, you don’t have to have received a specific form of treatment. As long as your medical records confirm that you were treated for your injuries, this will enable you to make your claim.
