The Road Traffic Accident (RTA) Lawyers at Forbes Solicitors offer free consultations for pedestrians injured in all types of traffic accidents. We specialise in No Win No Fee personal injury claims.

At Forbes Solicitors we are fully aware of the catastrophic consequences that can arise from accidents involving pedestrians. Vehicles driving at any speed have the ability to cause serious injury and a momentary lapse in judgment can cause serious injuries or even death. Relatively minor accidents can lead to extended time off work with reduced or no income, and so it is essential that the case is conducted quickly and efficiently to minimise any loss.

Specialist Personal Injury Claims for Pedestrians

Accidents involving pedestrians also require a specialist and in-depth knowledge of the law. As it stands, vehicle drivers are duty-bound to consider pedestrian safety and to drive in a manner which takes in to account pedestrians' often unpredictable behaviour as a result of which accident claims for personal injuries are often skewed in the pedestrian's favour. Pedestrians have successfully obtained personal injury compensation when they have stepped out from behind parked cars, crossed the road in traffic, or even fallen in to the road unexpectedly, and the Courts have consistently shown that they are willing to impose a very high duty of care on any vehicle driver.

Free Pedestrian Accident Consultation with Forbes

Our Personal Injury Solicitors can provide a free expert assessment of your case and represent you on a No Win No Fee basis. Our Solicitors will consider the detailed and wider circumstances of the accident which can be missed or ignored, such as the conditions which existed at the time; was the accident at night or in adverse weather conditions, did it take place in a public area, is there a school or playground nearby, was the view to pedestrians or vehicle drivers obscured? Consideration of the fine details ensures that you are provided with the best legal advice possible and the greatest chance of successfully getting compensation.
