Pedestrian accidents can vary a great deal when it comes to severity of injuries and after effects. If a pedestrian wishes to make a claim for compensation then they should apeak to Accident Advice Helpline to establish if they are eligible to do so or not. As with all compensation claim cases, the accident must have been someone else’s fault and there must be another person to blame.
Pedestrian accidents can have many variables, and every single one that occurs is unique with it’s own circumstances. These circumstances include the cause, the location, the people involved, the injuries caused and the after effects caused. Pedestrian accidents may occur for a number of different reasons but here are some common cases that we see:
- Dangerous driving from a car, lorry or van driver
- Proximity to a car crash, resulting in an injury
- An accident when crossing the road
- A collision with a bicycle or motorbike
Of course there are many other ways in which a pedestrian can become involved in an accident through no fault of their own and find themselves injured, but the above gives an idea of perhaps the most common causes.
To be able to make a pedestrian claim following a pedestrian accident, it must have happened within the past three years, resulted in the need for medical attention and have been caused by another person
In some situations, such as when a minor is involved (a child aged birth – 18 years), some criteria will be waived. A minor can make a claim (or a parent will do so on their behalf) at any point up until their eighteenth birthday, after which they have a further three years to make a claim.
