Being a pedestrian doesn’t mean you have any less rights than any other party when an accident happens. Whether you are the driver, passenger, cyclist or pedestrian if the accident was not your fault and you were injured as a result you could be entitled to make a claim.
Though claims take on all shapes and sizes any costs which you receive can help to compensate any accident related costs which you should not have had to pay in the first place. In order to do this you will need solicitors in Weston on the Green.
Making a compensation claim as a pedestrian
If you were on the receiving end during an accident with a vehicle it is likely that you will not be able to do much at the time of the accident. Before doing anything you must look after yourself first. If you are well enough to act try to get some contact details of any witnesses around you. They can be contacted at a later date in order to retrieve statements.
If you are unable to act in any way or form the emergency services usually take actions of their own which your solicitors in Westminster will later be able to obtain. These files could include photographs of the scene of the accident and eye witness accounts.
Solicitors in Weston on the Green and building a case on your behalf
Collecting evidence from the emergency services and anything you may be able to give your solicitors in Weston on the Green can make a start on your claim whilst you are on the mend. Throughout a compensation claim your solicitors go through a series of negotiations and discussions with the other party involved.
Discussions take place over topics such as the responsibility of the accident and the amount of compensation which can be rewarded at the close of the case. You can have input into these discussions but there is little influence you can have on the amount of compensation due to various reasons and limitations.
If you have been involved in an accident on the road you might be entitled to some compensation. Making a claim is not something you need to do alone, we can help.
