Pedestrian Injury Compensation
Pedestrians are particularly vulnerable when around the road. Approximately 30,000 pedestrians are injured on the UK’s roads every single year.
The figure is a constant target for reduction by the government, and although the number of pedestrian casualties has reduced over recent years, it is far from becoming totally safe for those who take to the pavements.
Although pedestrians do have the responsibility for their own safety, a car driver must be aware of laws that protect walkers, such as allowing them to cross if they have already deemed it safe to do so.
When a road user has been negligent and has collided with a pedestrian, it is likely that a pedestrian injury compensation claim can be made against them.
The Process of Making a Successful Pedestrian Accident Claim
If you have been injured as a pedestrian by a driver of a vehicle and the accident has been their fault then you should follow some important steps to increasing the chances of success for your pedestrian accident claim:
- Contact the emergency services. Police should take witness statements and be made aware of all the details of your accident.
- Make sure you are checked for injuries by an ambulance paramedic.
- Take the details of the driver at fault, including name, telephone number, address, registration number and insurance company details.
- If possible and safe to do so, take photos of the area where the accident happened.
